I've noticed some users posting private messages in threads.

I don't know where you all grew up but where I come from that's bang out of order.

Fair enough the death threat random ones but normal messages? Very grassy, teachers pet sort of stuff.

let's have a show of hands. Would you post a PM to the public? I wouldn't dream of it.

Who is here in 2019?

If it's a private message where you're basically just having a go at someone, if you're not prepared to say the same thing in public, you probably shouldn't be saying it at all.

My whole thing is why did you message jjdavis7 though?  That's just a rando person like me, not a moderator. You should have messaged a moderator like most normal people do.  Just saying.

Haven't seen any of that myself, but yeah, I wouldn't share private messages with others.

We can post PMs? Let me shock everyone with my inside scoop of the interactions between me and they waygook.org Mod team. I'm like Geraldo about to bust open Al Capone's vault-

Mr.DeMartino,

You have received a warning for use of profanity. Please review the Terms and Conditions (http://waygook.org/index.php/topic,2425.0.html) and abide by the forum rules otherwise we will take further action.

Regards,
The Waygook.org Team.

Stunning revelation that no one could have foreseen. I'm sure I'll be banned shortly for this unprecedented reveal of secret communications that no one could have fathomed taking place. After all, I've NEVER sworn on these boards. How dare they!  :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

So there it is. This undoubtedly unique and non-formulaic response will serve as a source of eternal embarrassment to the team. Thank you all for giving me the courage to share PMs.

I would do it. Especially when you're namecalling another user who isn't me in my inbox. Call that person out if you're mad at them, not a 3rd party. Have enough courage to argue with people you're actually upset with.

It depends on how far the other poster goes in public.

I get quite a few PMs. Unfortunately, a lot of them tend to be along the lines of:
Quote from: robb85258i
Subject: Re: idiot
Off yourself thx

However, my favourite so far was actually a mod's PM:
Quote from: Waygook.org
You have received a warning for continuing to post off-topic on a board after receiving a warning post from a moderator. Further more, you did so in a manner as juvenile as my middle school students passing notes in class. Posting things like:
 ["Military capability is almost fully dependent in this age upon either a)technological advantage or b)the mitigation of that advantage, in recent wars typically by guerrilla/insurgent tactics that neutralize superior armaments. While the NKorean military might theoretically possess some innate advantage with knowledge of the terrain and the ability to blend in with the local population, a guerrilla style-war on the part of both belligerents but especially the guerrillas requires belief in the cause. I'd question that even before I'd question the North's military readiness." ]
in 2.5 font so it's "hidden" is just ridiculous and it's insulting to my intelligence. Please refrain from off-topic posting and such juvenile behavior again.

Sincerely,
[redacted]
Waygook.org Moderator

Note: I'm actually very sorry about the whole thing and have since totally mended my ways. Mostly because I've found *better* ways! :D

In this thread we have jjdavis the grass who posts public messages and piggydee who was bragging about the ignore function and that I was on it.

They are the master trolls. This **** jjdavis chirps up saying i've posted something twice so i send said **** a pm then said **** posts it publicly and pretends like i sent them a random message.

Laughable really.

More laughable that you've been on several threads complaining about it and created another one. Maybe teaching isn't for you... I dunno if you can take the criticism and the kids that can be mean.

It's fun cuz you're so upset about nothing. Also, my subscription ends today on waygook.org, so I literally don't care about getting reported. But you do have to get all your frustrations on me out today or you'll miss out.

You are aware that I'm not a grass? The fact you'd pay for a subscription makes me chuckle as well. Hope your kids like your bomb game ppts from 2009.

Wow, you have a way with words. Maybe your calling is actually being an author. You can write a self-portrait character who calls people nonsense terms, believes in conspiracy theories, and delivers those sick burns.  :wink:

But really tho, I think you may be too sensitive to live in a foreign country. Best to get out while you can. I can PM you some career options where you don't have to work around other people.

Apparently I missed a few pieces of some interesting drama here. xD

Anyway, I totally would post the contents of a PM, but it also depends on the contents of the PM. If the main aim of the PM is to harass or threaten me, it has a higher chance of ending up on the board for all to see. I'm not beneath public shaming. If your main/sole purpose is to pointlessly fight/insult or to sow discord in general, you will not get around that by taking it to PM, especially if it came about as a result of public posts/argument. Shitty behavior doesn't become less shitty just because you try to hide it in a PM. In fact, it just makes it even more shitty.

Continuing an argument or debate that actually has grounds or merit, though, or disclosing any information of a personal matter, stays behind closed doors.

Id post it if I thought it was funny or BS like how I was given a warning from that ex-mod douchebag shane a couple years back because a poster on here decided to PM insult me and then I gave him a taste of his own medicine and I got in trouble. fun times

A word of advice: If you don't want or aren't comfortable with something winding up in front of the public, don't put it on the internet. We do take measures against those posting private information along the lines of doxxing, but PMs themselves aren't necessarily private. Also if anyone is harassing anyone else in PMs, feel free to let the mods know with unaltered full-screen screenshots. This behavior is not tolerated.
