XF 1.1 Private Conversations Q's

[This thread covers all versions, but my installation(s) are on 1.1.x]

Okay, so I've been seeing a user constantly using the Private Conversations area of my site without even participating in the community. I look into daily statistics, I see some users using them - I didn't expect people to be using them. So, I'm guessing this might be the reason why CODForums is eating up 1.5/2 gigs more than it should.

1. How much memory does PC's take up? Just for a single "post" in a PC? Understandably, it depends on the size of the PC. But how much does it take to "register" as a PC?

2. Is there a way to read these conversations to check if it's spam or not? Every time I see this user, I see another user online at the same friggin' time. I have a bad feeling about this thus far.

3. In phpmyadmin, where do I look for a particular member's PC?

I don't know if you can read private conversations within phpmyadmin. There is an add on though which should allow you to access PCs. http://xenforo.com/community/resources/login-as-user-by-waindigo.1131/

You will need to use PhpMyAdmin or an add-on. Find a table with "conversation" in it. I don't know the name off hand.
