    I recently received what I felt to be a somewhat abusive private message. Superimposed on it was "MODERATED". Does this mean that something in it might have been edited out? If so, thank you. It was sufficiently offensive as it appeared.

    Curious, though, of the meaning and how it came to be moderated.

    Also, I haven't been able to find a way to refer offensive messages to moderators. Is there such a thing?

    That means that *YOU* have opened or at least looked at the PM. Not any moderators.

    Hope that clears things up for you. :eusa_angel:

    Thank you for the reply but it adds to the confusion. I have several incoming PMs, all of which I have read and some to which I have replied but only the one has "MODERATED" superimposed on it when I revisit them.

    Ah well, I'll watch and see what happens over a longer time.


    Again, thank you for the effort!

    It shows that way, because you clicked on your private messages button. That is what I meant by even if you just look at them without reading any specific one. It is just how the PM system rolls here.

    And you're welcome

    In your Inbox, in the list of Personal Messages, checking off each corresponding check box will turn that PM's status to 'Moderated'. I do not know why that is, or how that info is used/useful.

    So I take it the OP doesn't seem to care for fucking bad language ~LoL~
    I assure you, the piece of shit PM wasn't from me, but if it's offensive you don't like, then I suggest you stay the hell away from anything that comes thru with my fucking name on it *haha*

    P.S. I'm just kidding.
    P.S.S. No, I'm really not.

    The language is one thing.

    Threats are quite another.

    threats aren't tolerated here. if you feel you've been threatened you should report the PM as you would report a post.
