new users able to send private messages right away is a negative

just recieved spam in private messages from a user called “nedim”

it may make sense to restrict private message ability until at least a couple real forum posts.

My vote to this issue, Even got the same spam message.

Agreed. No need to vote; the software doesn’t offer that natively but I’m looking for supporting tools. I may disable the PM functionality until then. Thanks for the input.
