A Private Message is an email-like message which can be sent privately from one user to another. Users are notified of a Private Message by a bubble with a link appearing next to their avatar and a number next to the mail icon next to the shortcuts. It is commonly referred to as "PM," "PMs" for plural, and "PMing" as a verb.
