No they can't, as an Admin of this Forum I can't read your PM's, I can only read what is sent to me directly.

The thread you are pointing states that it can be achieved but the file has to be downloaded via ftp, only the site owner can do this.
PM's can not be read from within the forum by anyone other than the member that it is sent to.

BTW, I'm sure this is not unique to E-Blah.
I'm pretty confident that ANY online forum/social network, etc will have access to so-called private messages, despite what they try to claim in their privacy statements.
It always ends up on a server somewhere and there's always someone with access to the server.

you seem very suspicious of forums what site do you mean that makes you so ""suspicious"" do you have your own site.
if NOT. you have been told site owners CAN NOT SEE private messages. i use E-Blah to run my site and can assure you that no one can see what you write in pm's unless the pm have been sent to you. even Martin of E-Blah have told you, you can not see pms. the servers may see in pms if there's an investigation the server CAN NOT indulge any information to ANYONE only with police if a site was being investigated. if your that paranoid don't go on any forum/sites and private message anyone. "simple"

I suggest you re-read Martin's post earlier and have a look at your cPanel/host file manager.  If you're not sure how to do that, I'm sure someone here can help

My post was merely emphasizing to the OP that it's not unique to E-Blah and nothing to do with paranoia
