Has anyone ever tried adding an event handler to the User Information List of a site collection? Or for that matter, an alert?

I'd try it out, but was just wondering if there were any issues I should be aware of.

What are you trying to do with it if I might ask? –  spevilgenius Apr 8 '10 at 0:42
    
It was a hypothetical question that I was asked recently, so I have no firm requirements. We have a collaboration environment (WSS only) and some site collections contain sensitive information. The site collection admins were asking if there was a way to be notified when people were given access to the site collection (intentionally or not) by the site owners. –  Paul Lucas Apr 8 '10 at 14:09

It is not possible to add event handlers to the user info list.

Please see this following thread:

That was me asking the question.
