If it's on the internet it is probably not private. JMHO.

You would be right piper, at least on SH. See my reply to Will's comment.
When SH went down, all sorts if weird stuff was going on. Our home pages were still up for one thing.

Yes, I know our home pages stayed up for a while. Interesting, what happened when you searched for your friend on SH.

I just figure that the administrators of a site , and maybe those who are assigned a position 'power', could and can read our private messages, should they wish to.

My guess - GUESS is that Sr. Mods could read our PM's. That's why I never send national security secrets to Vic via PM's.

I wouldn't know. Even though I was a SH participant (can't even recall the few usernames I used), the participation was narrowed down to just a few others, and it was not on a regular basis at all.
Can't even recall sending a private message to anyone.

All I do remember is that I was blocked & mocked by many who disagreed with my worldview and the various opinions that resulted from that worldview. It was a ridiculously humorous experience to say the least.

I was never on Sodahead, so I can't really make an opinion on this.
But when I was a mod on here? I sure never saw anywhere that PM's could be read by anyone. I would have to ask who would have the time nor care about anyone's PM's. Edit: Maybe yours and mine because we're ****!!! LOL

You would be correct Will. Two years ago, I was searching for a dear friend from SH and found her username and ID number, clicked the link and it took me to a conversation page between her and another member, it was only one page, but I could see the convo back and forth, it was there for everyone to see. Some links take you to a 404 error pages, but I’m darn sure some are still out there today.

Can't say as it concerned me then, though I am now certain that that weren't...at least at the end. After we were booted, I went back to search for a link I had posted and noticed a friend was logged in even though we were all locked out. Checked and it wasn't them. I started watching and over the next few months all of our accounts were logged on at various times. Some just briefly, others for much longer periods.

I had also archived my profile page. There were a multitude of SH pages archived at that time. As soon as whatever datamining they were doing was done and all our accounts were deleted...so were all the archived pages. To the best of my knowledge, the owners of SH (or any other private entity) do not have the ability to scrub internet archives. Just sayin'.

Yes, the log in after the site closed down was very suspicious. As well our home page was up for the longest time and after awhile things started disappearing, like the picture gallery, then the friend's list.

The whole thing was very strange.

Go see my reply to Will and the reason for this post.

"I don't read PM's blah , blah , blah yawn"

what's the point , People believe what they want to believe just as I did on Sodahead and I can't prove it anyway but after being a mod on a couple of sites and now a Senior mod on here I'm more inclined to believe that you do have your Privacy.

As for other sites I have no idea..........
