Is "Report to Admin" the same as "Report to Moderator"?

If you receive a PM that is inflammatory or against rules, is the report to admin option the same as report to moderator?

How would you let a moderator know?

I've never had the need to do this myself but it seems that the "Report to Admin" button does indeed get your message to a moderator.  I clicked on the link using an old message and this is what I got:

POD to that - sorry that that happened to you.

Thanks. I have my answer that it does go on to the mod team, and I have an answer on my message, so I don't want to say too much more here, kwim?

Still, I appreciate the kind thoughts! I've been a member a long time, and while I've certainly had disagreements with posters, I've never before sent or received a message that served no other purpose except to insult/inflame.  ::) :P
