The Conversation feature in this forum is not monitored by staff. Unless you include me in the Conversation, I will not be able to read your Private Conversations. In order for me to be able to monitor Private Conversations, I would have to install a modification to the forum software, and I have no interest in doing so. We're all adults here, and Private Conversations should remain private. Please keep in mind that what you say in private will not necessarily remain private. That is a general rule that applies pretty much everywhere, and particularly online, just as secrets don't necessarily remain secret. However, it is bad form to reveal a private conversation, and I am asking you not to reveal anything that is said to you using the Private Conversation features of this forum. That is not nice, and it is not in line with the concept of playing well with others. What you do outside of this forum is your business, not mine. If you are receiving unwanted Conversations from a forum member who appears to be a spammer, let me know about it. If you are receiving unwanted Conversations from another forum member, politely ask them to stop. If they do not stop, ask them again and include me in the Conversation -- include my Admin account rather than my Ken Anderson account because my regular forum account doesn't have any more privileges than anyone else's. This allows me to determine whether there is a problem, and puts me in a position of being able to do something about it. This may include banning, removing Conversation privileges, or simply communicating with the person involved, depending on the situation. If you are sending unwanted Conversations to other forum members, and they ask you to stop, please do. I would rather not be involved. Thank you.
