Private messages

Apparently there is a rule that in order to be able to send private messages I need to have 15 posts. Does not make any sense to me.
Anybody knows how to get around that short of place 15 responses just to get to that number.
Thanks

In 15 posts we can tell if your a spammer and ban you before you have the chance to solicite the general population in secret...

Squidd is correct.. it's a common rule on forums and prevents widespread spamming through the PM feature which I'd expect everyone would appreciate.

If you participate in the forums it doesn't take long to get the required posts.. an introductory post, a few in the 'Song Chain' can be fun, and there you are.

Inicdentally you can PM the mods or admin at any time if you have questions for them...

Tempest,

Where in NJ are you?
