    Some time ago I raised a minor concern about the name change from Private Messages to Conversations without response.
    Whilst I can't yet start a conversation (presumably because of the new pre-moderation process) in a conversation started by another poster I idly remarked on this change and suddenly noticed that, in my conversations at least, there is a "report link".
    I can see why that might be necessary as I have been places where private messaging systems have been abused by users and spammers but it does make me wonder as well.

    This has nagged at my somewhat idle but curious brain ever since and, although I am pretty sure that TES wouldn't intrude upon Conversations unless requested to, I still have this level of nagging doubt.
    It may seem ridiculous, but I'd like to have it formally confirmed by TES Admins/moderators that they do not have the ability to review conversations unless they are reported. @TES_Rosaline

    Oddly enough this is the sort of question I would have preferred to have asked by Conversation/PM but given that this post must be previewed by a moderator they do have the choice to not publish it and to respond by other methods

    I thank you for the swift reply and take from your answer that TES will only intervene or look at conversations if they are reported.
    This doesn't surprise me but I am grateful that my doubts have been fully answered
