Flagging Users for PM

I had a question I’ve been mulling over and was going to pitch for you.
When you Flag a certain users comment on a hread to privately talk to him, does that Flag add on to his actual flagged posts?
For example a user cannot become a regular if his flags are to high etc. does this count as a flag against him or is it simply a fast shortcut to a private message?
I’ve been wondering this because I’m worried about doing that and accidentally flagging them for reasons that should not be flagged

No that does not flag the user.

No it doesn’t. As far as I know, it’s just a PM.


Also out of interest do you ever get a notification about being flagged?..

Alright I was using this and I wanted to make sure I wasn’t flagging lol if you get me

This is just an easy way to initiate a PM


Right I know about how to pm someone I just wasn’t sure if this was a shortcut or something larger
