Another "Admin" read them? It could be deemed that admin's are allowed to do that. In the U.S. I am allowed to read my employees e-mail as the admin (we do notify them that this can be done though). You would need to show damages in the U.S. to recover any award. Look at this as a lesson learned. I always go by the credo, "If you type it, assume it will be made public."christhatsme wrote: if you had a good lawyer, you could sue him for breach of privacy.
By Private Messages your saying there private and will not be accessed by you, if you then go on to read them, you are in breach of privacy and contract - which are both offenses punishable by law in most countries.
You could argue against the contract bit, as it says nothing in the Registration agreement, but you would definatly be in breach of privacy - a good lawyer would argue in breach of contract aswell.

Find some scissors, you can probably find them still in the leg of the last person you caught reading your private messages. IF no scissors can be found, a large object will work just as well.
If you were unable to locate scissors skip to STEP 3. Locate your coxial cable, phone line or what ever form of connection you use to access the internet. Skip to STEP 4.
Locate your modem box, satalite dish, or some other piece of hardware that you use to access the internet. Skip to STEP 5.
Proceed to cut the your cable or phone line in several places, be sure to cut it so that it will be impossible to fit it back together. Skip to STEP 6.
Proceed to demolish your respective equipment.
Thier is no STEP 7 if you were successfull in your task.
