How dangerous are these forum admins anyway? Is there any cause for worry?

We can see your IP addresses. This is helpful in sorting out spammers and sock-puppets. We can ban addresses from accessing this site. Short of being geeks, we could play them as lottery numbers but not much else. IP’s are private and we will respect your privacy.

Admins have the same access to patrons’ email addresses as everyone else. It is the same invisible proxy method that everyone else gets. My patrons’ email address collection is wholely voluntary. We have no access to any further personal information unless a patron posts it for all to see.

Above us are the Super Admins or ‘Ubers’. They can see your email address and anything inputed to the site. They do not share any of this with the Plain Admins nor would we have any interest in or use for it.

We have sharp words and prickly points in our whoops-quivers. Tremble before them. It is all we got.

Dissatisfied patrons can go over our heads and entreat the ubers but it will land on my desk anyway.

I work in a large corporation. We bow and scrape to authority, then sneak around and do what we want. It’s the way of the world. Same here.

Greetings, Mr. Cat.

Your PM box reads as full and we would like you to feel free to open it up again. So I’ll address your problem here.

I know who this is and he was warned. This is not the first time he has been a PM menace. The IP will be PNG. All fifteen of them, in fact. Alas, poor Irfan.

We apologize for any inconvenience.
