Default Member E-mails and Safety?

Hi, everyone. It's PugsRock, but you can call me Pugs.

I was looking around at the User Control Panel, and I saw an option that allows you to get e-mails from other members. I don't think this is a safe option, because there are no moderators of administrators telling you not to give personal information. I was afraid to click there, so I only get e-mails from administrators.

Do you think this is safe?

I saw that once and wasn't sure what either one was. I even asked a mod and she didn't know. But I do think that is unsafe. Thanks for pointing this out Pugs.

Its very unsafe, i think WI should take it away, or people just dont click it. We have Pms, which are mostly the same as emails.

Yes, and someone can look at the safety of the PM's.

And we also have rules for Pming. On email you can do just about anything.

That option has NOT been enabled here on WI. There are some features that come with the default version of vBulletin that we don't use. Justin has gone in and disabled the features that don't work for Webkinz Insider. Even if you check "yes", you can't get emails from other members. It's kind of like cutting the wires to a light switch. You can still see the switch, but it doesn't matter what direction you flip it, the light will never turn on.
