Default Should admins be able to see /PM's between players?

This is currently possible on a server I play in, it's shady as fuck imo, what are your thoughts on this?

What's the point of the reading a private messages of others ? It's just nonsense, why either call it PM ?

They shouldn't unless there's a report on a private conversation.
The access should be there (conversations should be logged), but admins should not act on private conversations, even if these conversations are about them.
It's one of those things you should keep only for trusted people.

No. There are other ways to block spam or players advertising.
There is no good reason for admins to see other player's PMs.

It wouldn't be just meant for preventing spam or advertising.
You think the staff on these forums doesn't have access to your PMs? News flash, they do, and it's for a good reason.

I don't see it as too much of a big thing. Our little chitchats aren't so much interesting anyways if you ask me.

Do you see this little yellow thing? It's a button used to report private messages.
How do you think they punish the user if they don't have access to that specific message?
