Should CM be able to delete emails people send you?

A week ago or so I had recieved an email from someone-but I never got to see from who or what they wrote because CM deleted it before I got to it. I imagine it was a mean email from someone wanting to "give me a piece of their mind," but I dont care if it was nasty. I do however care CM deleted it. Its been bothering me since it happened. I tried to not let it bother me, but I cannot fathom a reason this would be okay.

  • Oh anon, go cry yourself to sleep. Your stupid comment was helpful to no one.

    I was going to say the same thing that Rkoloms said. It was probably a spam email that someone reported, so they deleted the message to all of the other recipients. This happened to me once before too and I had not yet opened the email, but I think the subject looked like a sales pitch and that is why I didn't open it in the first place. In any other circumstance, I agree with you. Cafemom should not be looking at our private emails....that's why they are called PRIVATE right!

  • I would think if it violates the agreement they have with us as users they probably have the authority to delete anything they want from their site? I'm no authority but I would guess that is what happened.

  • Do you mean to tell me they "know" what is in an email? Or was it a message from some snippy who didn't like an answer you gave?

  • I dont know what the email was. It was sent to me then by the time I saw it CM had already deleted it. So I guess they see what we write? IDK

  • I have no idea,,,, but had you answered a question? I don't think they should be able to look at a private message,, if you look at it and want to report it I think that is okay,, but what if it was someone who threatened you,, maybe they sent it anon? IDK! I only thought they deleted responses to questions,,, why don't you message cafe mom and ask them! Now you have me curious!

  • Could it be that maybe they caught someone sending out spam to emails and someone reported it? idk It is weird that they would know what is coming into your email.

  • It was probably a sales pitch send to multilple CafeMoms; someone reported it and all copies were deleted.

  • Just to be clear, it was not an actual email, it was a CafeMom message, correct?
