Never fear. The aforementioned administration is not likely to 'peter out' any time soon.

So succinct, so to the point. I wonder if Jillian can tolerate being placed in the passive role in as much if DR can comprehend loyalty.

To the contrary, it is an exploration of the parameters. The fact that you (meaning moderator, nothing personal) have the ability to know of the activity of any registered member of this forum regardless of their privacy setting (which is provided by the website as an available personal option) leads one to wonder what other levels of exploration and public disclosure are available to the various levels of administration of the board.

It is easy to think of one's postings as "intellectual property" while posts like #31 of this thread (meaning you and is somewhat personal) are a reminder that there is no property here. This leads to a couple of questions.

Can a moderator see into the PM In/Out box of members?
Can a moderator read a message post Reply to Thread as it is being typed or a New Topic before it is posted?

Just wondering what the level of transparency is.

At work, our Loss Prevention department has remote, lipstick type cameras that they place into stores when there is an issue, unknown to the management staff of those stores. I always remind those who work at the store that knowing that fact makes it simpler to act as though the cameras are already there. This encourages the proper behavior from everyone, including those who might otherwise be tempted to give themselves or others a 'discount'.

As for me, I've occasionally 'dropped trou' while 'alone' in the office to ostensibly tuck in my shirt tail. What anyone might DO after I've done that, of course, is out of my hands but I would not expect to see a videotape of it at the next managers' meeting. Now if I was dipping into the cash, for example, I am positive THAT video would be shown at the next meeting but since I would no longer be employed I would therefore not see it.

SO...

Regardless of what may or may not have happened to some self or otherwise declared non-member, post #31 of this thread stands alone as reminder that what we, as members, may perceive as a private matter is, in reality, the property of BenzWorld and any such information may be disseminated in any manner as BenzWorld or its representatives desire.

Thank you for your assistance in this matter.

Really. That last sentence might read a come across a little 'smart-assed' but that is not the intent.

It helps to know this stuff.

Well, OK but if I come back and see Zeitgeist yawning, I swear...

I'll fly out to his neck of the rainforest and force him to drink decaffeinated Folgers Dark French Roast that was made in a 33 year old Mr. Coffee that gets a cup of Chlorox run through it every Saturday night whether it needs it or not.

Now I gotta go to work.

And I, to bed, and we have left out some delightful 15 YO Lagavulin, honey coated Macadamia nuts and petite mince pies for his red and fatness and are expecting large and expensive presents to be waiting at the end of the bed and under the tree in the morning.

Merry Xmas...

Dig,

If you go to the PM section there is a notification on the page somewhere that states all PM's can be monitored for "security reasons". Now with that being monitored I would assume that certain Mods, probably the infamous "Super Mods" as they have been referred to have all and more special powers as listed below:

Super Strength: The Super Mods have the ability lift heavy objects like steel support beams.

Leaping Ability: As originally conceived in the BW charter, Super Mods can leap an 1⁄8th of a mile or hurdle a 20 story building in a single bound.

Super Speed: Super Mods can run faster than an express train.

Durability: Super Mods skin can not be pierced by anything short of a large artillery shell.

Member Status: Super Mods have the ability to see a BW member even if his or her on line status is hidden and in certain situations Super Mods can look up the skirt of certain female BW members if they deem these women a security threat.

Anyone here knowing of any other super powers that these Super Mods may or may not have please feel free to list them here to know what powers the 'man" has..........

I now think that the Super Mods and their sheep have installed spyware onto my computer, via the Benzworld site, to monitor my online activity.
Gawd are they gonna be bored.

Another point: 'Private Message' should be changed to 'Semi-private Message' to alert members that their privates are not really private and that their members may be massaged at any time. Wait . . . what . . . oh . . . nevermind.
