Default Mods reading DMs?

Okay so I understand that there is (or would be) a reason for this, but can moderators/admins wantonly read though people's DM threads? Or does the conversation have to be reported to be viewable by a position of power?

Unless there is reasonable suspicion of a person breaking rules in private messages, or they are reported, staff do not go through them.

No one on the staff (those who are able to) randomly reads through anyone's PMs. We don't believe in violating someone's privacy "just because." There has to be overwhelming suspicion of something that is a severe violation of site rules.

Besides, the people who are on staff are all volunteers - we all have lives outside of VT, and to be honest...we have better things to do with our time.

I would also like to add that only administrators can read PMs. There isn't a large number of people who can do it, only three of us, and as the others have said, it is only done if there is a serious concern that users are abusing the private messaging feature and breaking site rules.

Always here to help. Don't hesitate to PM me.
