Hi Kate. We are looking in to this at the moment. Thanks for the heads up.

Thanks Corrosive,

For a moment I was livid but I *had just got up, no cuppa which helps and just got here to report it.

I was not awake enough to realise it was a hoax.

That first steaming hot cuppa of the day is a life saver :)

I had a forum hit by that kind of post twice (I know, fool me once…). They usually sign up with an official sounding user name and the auto blast the pms. I had to crank the allowable number of pms way down.

Great. Another kind of forum menace to contend with!

On one forum I totally removed messaging privileges from new users. I think there might be a way to make them achieve a certain number of posts to get the privileges.

Part of the issue here is this is an old vBulletin license.

I'm currently putting together some kind of fundraiser w advertising opportunities to buy the current version of the software.

Right now I had to remove the PM system all together til I figure something out.
