Personal messages

Please can any tell me why some Visitor messages sent by myself say "This message is moderated "
I have to say it makes me a little uncomfortable to not know the reason why and wonder if any forum members can help me.

There are no personal messages on this forum or I should say no private messages, all messages are moderated I believe when you put a message in the visitors messages

Pat,
thanks for your reply. I did mean to say visitor messages and i know they're not private.
I have posted quite a few visitor messages since joining the forum and only two have had the words "This message is moderated" The two messages have since disopeared ?
Neither of the messages were controversial or anything like that.

:o Right i've figured it out . You were correct Pat all messages are moderated and the words "this message is moderated disapears once the reciever has clicked approve message. I was feeling a bit freaked out, like i'd done something wrong 😃
