What can Mods and Admins do?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I was just wondering the other day:

-can you read all edits of a post?
-can you read my PMs?
-can you change my password?
-How 'bout my signiture? can the Mods change that?

Just asking out of paranoia/curiosity.

Yes.
Yes.

Does this happen sometimes?

It never has yet. It's too much trouble to get access to your passwords since they're encrypted in the database.

but if you changed a user's password, you wouldn't have to worry about decrypting it ;-)

Brad is right, I know of no instances where any mod/admin has logged in under another user's account. I wouldn't anticipate such a scenario either...

They can log on to the X-ray channel of your iSight (the cover doesn´t help against that)

Nah, I think that the mods are mostly human.

But I am convinced that they have a direct hotline to Steve Jobs desk. ( That's why they've all been given free G5 machines ahead of the rest of the universe )...
Man I so envious of that but I can wait ( barely )8)

Ok, cat is out of the bag. That G5 on ebay wasn't a scam, it was Powerdoc's. We needed the money for beer.

Ok, and hookers.
