    well in this case it didn't. I use Yahoo email on here and WB. This one came through my other email

    On the drum-builders forum I admin (also VBulliten), I had to set all new users into the "moderation" queue. But some of them were still able to send PM's (the ones that figured it out). I then found where you can restrict guest and "moderated", and banned and such, as to NOT allow PM's to be sent by them.
    Just pointing out in case that matches what happened.

    And waste time it will be. Excellent work. I got the spam, thanks for doing such a great job minimizing this stuff. And I agree - it's good to let lurkers who finally join be able to PM right away - hammock camping is not the way most people grew up camping so it invites lots of great questions.

    As a fairly new person to this forum I appreciate the ability to send PM's. Before I even had 4 posts I had sent PM's to several people who were somewhat local to me. Ok maybe regional. This is a great resource and I hate to see spammers try to ruin it.
