You need to have a minimal amount of posts in the forum before you can use the PM function.

This is to prevent spammers from Private Messaging everyone.

I see, thanks. However I must say this is quite odd way of protection - let people receive private messages and do not let them read. Why not give a R/O instead? Or simply do not let PMs to be sent to such "unauthorized" person at all.

What is a minimal amount of posts? You mean we should should just post garbage instead of only replying when one has a responsible opinion?

Seems a bit vague to me. :roll:

Cool. Glad to know I'm not the only one with this problem. I hate posting fluff, really I do, but if that's the only way to do this... *fluff! fluff! fluff!*
