    Spam - private messages

    Got notice of private msg in email. Turns out some guy in Florida with no posts sent me link to cheap parts, but no Saab stuff. I thought you had to have a certain number of posts to get onto private messaging?
    pretty annoying.
    here is his msg from. Jkenn31

    This user has been spamming quite a number of our members so thanks for the alert.

    It sounds like a good idea to set a minimum number of posts before you get PM priviliges so I'll set it to a minumum post count of 10.

    10 might be a bit much if someone really needs help. After all we are an ER. Keep up the good work WULF.

    The fasted way for help is posting in the public forums and I would like to prevent new members from contacting other members just because they want a quick answer. Is a minumum of 5 posts more acceptable?

    The new rules are in place now. As this is pretty easy to circumnavigate, I also set up PM throttling so you can send 5 messages max per hour.
