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

Re: why post 5 times for PM

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...
