well - it's now 15 posts and there will also be a 7 days minimum length of membership to send PM's . You can thank the spammers that have shown up for this new rule.
sorry - but we have to protect our members from unwanted junk pm's.
If someone is truly wants to be contacted then they can turn-on "receive emails from other members" and let someone know in a thread they'd like to be contacted. This way they are not making their email address public - which you SHOULD NEVER DO!
