Who legally owns the messages? Who owns the posts? Can anyone post or put up on the web any posts and PMs from any message board? Are there mentions of this in a sign up agreement?

Not so private that I would suggest you discussing your midget goat fetish on here.

Seeing how there is no sense in reinventing the wheel, I posted a link to a discussion of this subject.

Good link. I trust Gunny and Crimson to not access our PMs and I am not concerned in the least.

I guess the moral of the story is to not post shit that you don't want people to read.

hmm, I used to trust too easily. No more. I do know control panel functions can be and are accessed. PMs, are in there no? Either way, I think the owners of boards can and do do what they want, regardless of agreements.

and that link is an interesting discussion, It was not deleted or closed. It was treated with respect. :eusa_whistle:

I PM sexy and lurid pronographic details for the enjoyment of mods. I can always tell when EZ has been reading mine because she starts posting pics of naked homos.

Are we still using the MadLibs formula for that?

I was selectively mixing and matching from the backs of cereal boxes, old issues of Play Boy and hazard warning labels of home cleaning products :)
