 First will say I know that is possible to read private messages from other
 Users if you have root access to database. Export as any of the extensions
 and read. But it is difficult, chaotic, and not easy to find/read private
 messages from table.

 So in some way this is standard for almost all forum scripts and it is as
 it is, and thanks God not easy to do it.

 My question is about User Switching plugin. With few clicks you are inside
 any User profile and you can read private messages as they read them.

 Probably it is not easy to limit browser access to private messages of
 other Users and neuutralize plugins like User Switching.

 But, just to ask anyway. Would it be tehnically to demanding to limit
 effects of such User switching plugins ?
