Do mods on here have access to read my PMs like they do on Flippa?

A recent security breach where someone hacked into Flippa and took a screenshot of the admin screen shows that Flippa admin can log into a user’s account and [URL=“”]read their PMs

Since Flippa is a spin-off from here, I thought it maybe relevant to bring up this question for some reassurance from Sitepoint.

Can anyone confirm that no Sitepoint mod/admin/owner or anyone else has the ability to log into and read users’ private messages?

Thanks, HAWK, that’s good enough for me.

Hi Clinton,
Moderators do not have access PMs, however I do.

I very occasionally use that facility when dealing with PM spammers but under no other circumstances do I ever access private messages.
