Do the Forum rules cover the use of PMs?
« on: September 10, 2019, 10:59 AM »
In a now locked thread, a PM was quoted. My understanding is that private messages exchanged should be kept private and not be made public unless both parties agree otherwise. That's a respect we should expect from that medium of exchange.

     Yes. See below from the forum rules.

       Private Messages (PM)

Please keep private messages private.  The PM system is designed to allow members to communicate to one another out of the sight of other members.  You should never publish private communications in a forum post without the prior permission of the original sender. For the purposes of site administration, please be aware that moderators may occasionally share PM content amongst the admin staff.
