That way nobody could share the password to see the forum (well, they could share user accounts but that's a whole different problem).
    Ohh I get it. I had no idea why this was posted in this thread until I read Post #3

    I agree. You (must?) should disclose that Private Messages can and may be read by administrators.
    Inform and warn your members not to share sensitive information via the Private Messaging system.

    its because i have a password for one of the forums and when a member qualifies to enter the forum and is sent the password, i dont want them telling other members that have not qualified to recieve the forum's password.
