Crazed PM's not particularly P?

Just noticed that if you click on someone's name in the Index
http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/
and they are PM'ing, you can see who they are PM'ing to.
Before it just used to say they were PM'ing and the recepient was not named which seems to make more sense as it should be P.

Re: PM's not particularly P?

I was just Emailing our friendly übermoderator Selespeed about this, when I though I'd change to modern view just to check if that would change anything. Then I discovered your post. Doh. Not very private is it, That's why I changed my signature yesterday

Re: PM's not particularly P?

guess it doesn't matter if you can see who is PM to whom, long as they can't see the subject matter, does it?

Re: PM's not particularly P?

Dunno, say two of you had just been having an argument with a person, then that person saw that the 2 were swapping PM's between them, the subject matter wouldn't be hard to work out would it?

Not that I ever use the PM facility as a *****ing tool personally of course

Re: PM's not particularly P?

It is true that when you view someone's profile or look at the who is online list you can see what every member is doing at the time you opened the page. And if a member is actually reading or sending a PM you can see that in the listings.

However, nobody can see the subject or, even more important, see the actual message. So a Private Message is still a real Private Message.

Even I can't read any of the Private Messages from our members, and I am in 'god mode'.

Re: PM's not particularly P?

If i am correct, this will no longer show who you are pm'ing. Private messages are indeed very private, let me know if this is still an issue.
