      Description

      MDL-22077 introduced private replies, which teachers are using. When a user is sent a private reply, they are unable to reply to that to continue the conversation. 

      According to Andrew Nicols this was a decision made because it was felt that a chain of private replies might be confusing, however I have heard from teachers that they expect to be able to continue a conversation.

      I propose we allow replies to private replies, or at least make this an option. Apparently there's no technical impediment to this, so it should be easy to implement.
