Finally! This really needed to be addressed. So, thank you for doing so as immediately as you could.
Now, coming to an issue that I hope your team has started working on (atleast from now on): The abusive hate PMs from newbies who only make IDs to abuse members they don't like or agree with. This problem has persisted in the Bollywood forum for years now and we have seen no solution thus far. Maybe if you could restrict PM service of newbies until they make a certain number of posts. Or, maybe there could be better IP detecting measures you could implement that would restrict proxy server users from accessing I-F, cuz it seems like most newbie abusers use proxies and fake IPs to make new IDs again and again to send nasty PMs.

Also, there has been a lot of false rumors being spread that Senior DT members as well as Admin have the ability to access members' private messages. I would like to stress that NO MEMBER OF THE DEVELOPMENT TEAM INCLUDING THE ADMIN GROUP are able to access members' inbox or read private messages. Member privacy is of the utmost importance and will never compromised under any circumstance. The private messages sent by a member are only accessible by the sender and the recipient, and NO ONE ELSE unless its reported by the recipient.
I'm happy to know this isn't true. I wonder why some members claimed otherwise.
