    Besides the only people who should get annoyed by it is admins/staff, as we should really be the only people pming that much.

    Anyone who seriously sends more than 100pms a day needs shot.

    That is funny. I would love to put that on youtube. Man gets shot for sending to many PM's.

    However that statement is correct there is no need to send that many PM's. If you feel like you would like to have a detailed convo with someone it is best to do it over messenger.

    Dont worry i will eventually fix it up for jnr vips and people with atleast like 50+ posts to have it removed just i had to throw something up today to stop this shit

    And anyone who buys that shitty product needs shot too. Its available free elsewhere and on this forum so no need to buy it.

    I got the same private-message as well, from the looks of it, his spammer sent quite a lot of private-messages.

    Good move I always thought that some busy forums should have some rules for sending PMs. Be it wait times or some captcha thing. Like there are people spamming over sitepoint and DP all the time..

    just set this place so new members with under X number of posts or days reg can't PM except to the mods or admins.

    spammers aint got time to post or wait, they move on to the next easy hit ;)
