    Private Message Usage for New Members

    Effective immediately:
    If you have registered after February 20th 2011, you cannot use the Private Message system unless manually authorized by the forum staff.

    This is a direct response to assholes who register to harass and intimidate members of our community.

    In order to activate your Private Messaging, you need to make a single reply to this thread requesting for the use of it, along with a valid reason for the usage.

    To quote All Your Base...: What happen?!
    Battered and weary after the craziness of the 1960s, the self-righteousness of the 1970s and the greed of the 1980s, I want to go home again, oh, so desperately - home to that land of drive-in restaurants and Chevy Bel-Airs, making out and rock 'n' roll and drag races and Studebakers, Elvis and James Dean and black leather jackets. Not that I ever owned a black leather jacket.

      I suspect some more random insult bots sneaked onto the forum and started spamming inboxes with death threats starting with "Die painfully".

        someone set up us the bomb

        I think Q explained it nicely, but I wouldn't mind a few juicy details myself.

          Never heard of insult bots before, is Anon remotely trolling now?

            It's not new, I got a threatening bot-spewed message on Yahoo Answers years ago.

              I realize this thread is not meant to be a discussion thread, but I feel this needs to be said:

              I hope "I want to exchange private messages with other members here" is valid enough. Your wording can be read to be meant more restrictive...

                That is a valid reason, however we will check more than their reason-- IPs, previous posts, location, etc, and it will be up to our discretion to enable the feature.

                  this is my first message board. How does one "send a Private Message" to another user?
                  Thanks!

                        Denied. Your request is to get torrent site invites, which is against the forum rules.

                          OK.

                          I'm truly sorry if I have caused any inconvenience.

                              Some forums only let you use PM's are posting at least 20 'intelligent' posts.

                                That's fair enough I guess.

                                  Very sensible forum policy.

                                    I am against that policy on the basis that I'd never reach that total.
