I removed the mod, please use the other thing i linked in the post.
I dunno man....

I had a user on my forum get pissed and make his own forum. One of his buddies was emailing everyone on my forum, especially the most active members, and encouraging them to join there instead. Their forum still exists to this day, and it is loaded with FORMER members of my forum.

It sucked royally, and it took me ages to find out that this was going on behind my back for MONTHS before I found out. When I finally caught the jerk who was contacting my members, he didn't even see why what he did was wrong (still doesn't).

My board went into a tailspin. Moderators resigned because they said my board would die without all those key members. The rats deserted me in droves.

Luckily one or two loyalists took over and we built things up again. Some of the rats rejoined, and I let them, and the board is flourishing because of things we did to keep it from dying. The guys who started this were permanently banned.

My point is- it's YOUR board, a privately owned board. Anyone posting anything does so at their own risk knowing that it is YOUR property. If there is criminal activity, YOU will be held responsible! Phones can be tapped- they belong to the phone company and there is NO privacy. How is a site any different?

Admins have an absolute right if not a responsibility to keep track of activities on their board. A mod which helps them do this is useful.
