PM post limit?

Apologies if I've missed this one, not spending much time on the forum lately!

I've started receiving a lot of emails directly regarding the service offered in response to my PM, as a result of people not being able to PM me back due to not having enough posts.

Is this something that has been implemented recently? I used to get PMs from folks who signed up solely for a mirror repair with no issues.

Hi Sam

Yes, we had an automated spam attack a few months ago and the fix to stop it was to implement a few limits.

Members now need 5 posts to send PM's, attach images and put links in threads.

Answer 2 is that because you've deserted us we've jinxed your account

Cheers Pete. Let's call it a sabbatical rather than desertion
