I've had three pm's forwarded to people they were not sent to. Another poster and I are pming and a third party is grabbing them and sending to other posters. I have tried to get topix to look into it but so far, no luck. What good is a pm if they can be hacked?

Topix mods/employees can read PM's if they care to - it says right on there.

Yes. I always wondered if it wasn't one of the mods as I got a really snarky zanswer when I asked them to look into it,. Thank you!

You're welcome. I hope you get some resolution.

The Private Messages aren't quite so private, and they should be.:-0

If anyone cares to look at the top of your screen for a lock where is says ( topix.com ) it should have a lock next to their insignia. Well, mine doesnt. How bout yours?

If it does not have that lock beside their logo/name, then you are wide open to any and all hackers that wish to pass one any information about you.

So keep it safe by giving a new email that can easily be made, then transfer the email given to you to your regular email address, delete the new email, and you should be fine for private communications.

Just a thought.

Thats the very reason I was trying to give some of my friends here my email so we could have a more private conversation.
To some it worked, but to others; not so much.

And I think Ive about given up on making anymore new friends here, since either topix or I will be going anyway, then why bother trying?
Makes no sense.

Hey NM, thank &#847;y&#847;o&#84 7;u for responding to me. I will do what you said. What burnt you out on topix besides the trolls?

No problem, WildLifeLover, I like help others if ever possible. But Im not the only one thats burnt out and fading away into oblivion when the site itself shows its in its death rows. A star thats slowly fading into the blackness of space.

Too many people with multiple accounts. But I dont begrudge or shun all of them when I know there is at least one I can trust.
Hes a really good man thats very cheerful and tries to help others - a good one.

But Ill not speak of anything more since it deals with my personal life.

And an open forum is not the place for that discussion. My apologies.

Not a problem!( I'm sick to death of hearing "no worries"! To me any discussion is a good discussion as loong as it is not a personal attack on a poster that isn't a troll!
