why post 5 times for PM
 
Ok...this is my 5th post...I hate that I had to do this JUST so I could PM someone to try and buy something from them. Just curious on why.
thanks

Has something to do with preventing spam bots from mailing I think. Not entirely sure.

This is in the FAQ section :goodvibes:

How many posts do I need to be able to send a Private Message?
You will need a total of 6 posts to be able to send a Private Message. We have done this so as to prevent postbots and spammers from sending mass Private Messages. Posting is very easy!

Start a thread in the Introductions Forum - tell us about yourself. Join a conversation in the Off Topic where many of our members hang out. There are so many places to contribute a post that 6 posts will come and go very quickly!

I'm very thankful for the posting limits. I'm sure everyone remembers a few weeks ago when there were at least 10 spam threads a day started on here and it was so annoying. Imagine those people being able to PM you all day long until they got banned...
