I recieved a Private Message from Billy Hunt

I replied to the message on three different occasions today, Billy Hunt has not recieved the messages but a character called gumboselfish has recieved them instead! :nono:

I know the moderators read our private messages and they are not safe etc..

I at least expected them to reach the intended recipents.

I have checked my sent messages and they were definitely sent to Billy Hunt.

WTF is going on?

Now some bloke called Gumboselfish knows all my secrets :(

Is he on your buddylist or something? Moderators CANNOT read your Private Messages. Lets be honest, it is blatantly user error rather than the GPG broken.

Garbage In Garbage Out as we say at my work :wave:

Or maybe there is in fact some sort of software error. As gumboselfish and Billy sometimes share computers maybe it got confused. Maybe banana will be able to shed light.

I have turned down all requests for buddies on all sites, so its not that.

Yeah it is not possible to view Private messages on these types of board, it is on all the other message boards just not this one :rolleyes:lol

I said Moderators can't, and they can't. Administrators may be able to, I don't know. If they can I am sure they don't.

:wave: Leave us poor Mods alone :nono:

I used to moderate a pacifist fishing website in the Midlands and I used to read everyones messages, maybe it has been disabled on this site.


Sorry to question the moderators integrity.:crazy3:

:wave: I work for a rather large American company, that is why we employ an American phrase.

It gets us through the day :rolleyes:

I humbly suggest that gumblefish received them and simply didn't read Billy's PM?

How do you know your PM went to gumblefish's account?

Gumboselfish uses the same PC as Billy. He read the PM on Billy's logon without realising. He calls you.

Billy doesn't reply as Gumboselfish has already read the PMs on Billy's account.

Well if this is true gumboselfish deserves a good shoeing for wasting all of our time, I was going to go out clubbing tonight but this has really taken the edge of it, I will just stay in and watch Corrie instead. :wave:

gumboselfish has signed in to the gpg at work on my computer. He hasn't signed in under his username and mine is on 'remember me' so that I don't have to keep signing in. :rolleyes:
