    OK, the rumors go around periodically that private messages can be accessed by moderators. They cannot. Repeat, PMs cannot be read by anyone but the recipient. That is why they are called PRIVATE messages. I can't access them either.

    If you give someone your password, sure they can read your private messages (PMs). Don't give out your password. And make your password "strong" and not easily guessed. Passwords cannot be retrieved by me or anyone else. That is why if you ask me for your password, I can't give it to you. I CAN change your password without your permission but you would know if I had because you couldn't log in. And I absolutely have a higher ethical code than that. Plus, I have better things to do than read your PMs, LOL!

    Moderators cannot change your password. I am the Great & Mighty Oz, no one else. That is why I am surrounded by Toto dogs and personally own a Dorothy blue & white plaid dress and ruby slippers. Ah, I digress.

    Come on, guys. Your passwords and private messages are PRIVATE. PRIVATE. Got that?

    Now, be careful out there with your passwords!

    Love you all,
