Are community DMs private?


#1

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

#2

They are not private in that administrators can read them.


#3

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


#4

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


#5

Ok that is good (expected) news.

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


#6

Nope, they cannot. Only administrators.
