lol, Glenn, do you seriously think I have time to read over 100,000 IM's? I have already heard the claims, and I expected you did too.
I "assume" that certain people are saying I invade their privacy.
When we had the "redthumb440" incident, I had put a check in the IM system to forward all IM's involving my name and Jay's name to me, in hopes of catching the prick. But, shorly after implementing the check I had to remove the check for Jay's name since so many people either mention him or send him IM's. Since it was going to my account, I didn't get many mentioning my name (IM's sent to me didn't get resent to me), so I never took it out.
But a few months ago, I started to get them from Jay and Carlos, and with other incidents that had happened I felt I should read them. The things they said about the site and many members, including all of the Mods excpet for Smokey, made me confront them about it. They got pissed off since I "caught" them, and I knew what would eventually happen.
I am not sure what they told you, but I don't invade people's privacy. I don't have time to do it even if I wanted to. We have a site disclaimer at the bottom of every page. Read that. Everything entered into this site become property of the site. I don't care to read, nor have the time to read everyone's IM's. I don't even have enough time to read all the messages on the board.
But the things they said warranted me reading those. And it isn't like I went into their profile to read them, they were sent to me.
