Using private channels
To create a private channel, issue a ‘private request’ to another user. The remote user will have to accept this request. A new private channel will be created automatically and both users will be placed in it, leaving any channels they might be joined to at the time. If one of the users exits a private channel, the second user will automatically exit it also and that private channel will be destroyed.
If a private request was sent to multiple users and one of them accepts it, the other private requests become invalid and accepting them will do nothing.
