Yes, we all have separate inboxes. There is no giant inbox where all messages to moderators go.

amandalouise asked about this sentence in the OP:

Quote:
Remember that discussing administrative actions in a PM is against the Community Guidelines.
What that means is discussing a PM involving administrative actions publicly. The guidelines prohibit posts about:
  • Messages discussing a private message (PM) from others
  • All administrative issues

So if we either don't understand a PM we get from a mod or admin we're allowed to ask in PM?

Am I allowed to say I have a really hard time reading really long PMs? What I describe as motorway length PMs cause I get halfway then my brain turns it to word salad and goes into information overload?

Maybe you need to clarify the rule so not wrong things can be read into it.

I wish I had been that lucky. I always get anxiety when I get pm from a monitor.

This is only going to feed my paranoia issues if they can read our messages

PMs should only be seen by two people in my opinion, the person who sends it (how else would they type it up if they didn't read what they was typing?) and the person getting the PM

Please don't read all my PMs, it's bad enough three knowing when I'm saying anything let alone the mods and admins reading all my PMs as well

My inbox is not for reading up what I'm chatting about with friends on the forum

Please stay out of my inbox
Exactly I just discover this myself!

If we switch our own PMs off, maybe they then can't read our PMs

I know many on the boards here are very sensitive & struggle with anxiety, but everyone has a completely anonymous screen name. No one knows who "emgreen" is, so even if I write something nasty about Turtleboy, he can't fly over from Ireland & beat my arse (he's a wuss anyways)! Thus (and this is just me), it's not really a great matter if someone happens upon a PM. I hope this perspective helps some of the people suffering from anxiety. I've never encountered an evil mod (with the exception of Turtleboy, that is).
