Are community DMs private?


While using, are direct messages treated as completely private?
Or is the Internet able to crawl through them - completely public?

They are not private in that administrators can read them.


So not 100% private…
But can they be crawled?


They cannot be crawled, because they are not available without authentication.


Ok that is good (expected) news.

But to clarify some more…
Can any (random) authenticated user see messages they have NOT been included in?


Nope, they cannot. Only administrators.
