[QUOTE=RoedyGreen;2726762]I received a private message. When I responded I was told I had not posted enough to send private messages. It was unclear if you could not initiate messages or you could not respond either. It makes no sense to stop newbies from replying. I don’t know if my message was sent or not.
If not, the sender will think I am rude to ignore his message.[/QUOTE]
As Kerry says this is basically an anti-spam measure to protect our members.
I’m not entirely sure on this but I think I remember seeing somewhere that the limit is five posts, and you’ve already got four, so if you respond to this or any other thread then your PM functionality should be enabled.
