This has been "rectified."

All new users must post a minimum number of public forum posts before they will be allowed to send PMs. I imagine the robotos won't bother.

I have also put in a max number of PMs per a time interval, as well as the max PM recipients per PM. Anyone using the system normally will never hit these limits.

Thanks for getting rid of the SPAMMER. I had sent a PM to an Admin about it yesterday, and logged in today to find that my PM's no longer work. I am more of a lurker, so I guess my low post count is below your new minimum settings?

My PMs are back. Thanks again to the Admins/Mods for your time and effort to maintain this forum. :cool:

Yes, I am in the same boat. I can't PM, either. How do I fix this?

You have to make 10 post before you can send PMs.
