This is Scary

I was using the search feature and it lead me not only to discussions people had done BUT to a private message I was sent. NOW before everyone panic.... I don't know if it would lead someone else there or if it just sent me there since I was signed in. Would like to know if this has happened to anyone else before I write to myLot.

It's true that when you do a search it will also bring up your emails whether sent or received. It however doesn't let anyone else see this. The only mail that a search engine here at mylot will bring up is your own or that which has been sent to you. Hope that helps. :)

No it has not. I hope your assumption is correct otherwise it is not Private.

I have had this before, I assume we only get our own private messages, I've never seen anyone elses, so I thought it was just mylot helping us. I think that's why they are called private messages, they are between the 2 of you only.

No, it only pulls up your private messages. I wondered about this myself but did some experimenting and every time all it showed were the messages I had sent. I logged out and did the same search and it didn't show the messages. I did wonder about this the first time I had it happened, there have been a few times I've shared information privately that I would rather the world didn't know about.
