I suggest that you implement an a moderated post system. The number of posts DWC get are manageable from a moderators perspective. The effort would be no more than what you are doing now, deleting spam as you see it. It would make a cleaner forum. You could say the first 5-10 posts would give a general idea of the members goals and would sharp whittle out the idiots. The PM system would be disabled for the first 10 posts of course. The main thing is that once the idiots realise that its a moderated forum then they will also understand that spamming is a pointless activity because no one will see the spam anyway. This would allow you to switch the PM system back on.

Ah yes, I get it now, sorry being a bit Monday morning. Yes, it would be good to have the PMs back on.

im in favour of this and have suggested it also i think 5 posts would maybe be enough as there is an automatic moderation for posts with certain words in it

5-10 posts would be perfect. There's no way to implement it at current time, but it would solve alot of issues.

Like Ed said, it's not the first time the idea has come up.
