Spam messages

Why do I keep getting messages telling me my PMS are too 'spammie'?

All I'm trying to do is send my details to a fellow user who has offered me help and asked for my email address...nothing more!

So annoying I must say!

Hi Pete,

We used to have a lot of problems with 'bot' accounts automatically messaging users and filling up their inboxes with spam. As a result, we introduced some rather strict measures - if you're a new user, there's a waiting period of around 10 days where you cannot include URLs and certain keywords.

I understand that this is frustrating. I'll get in touch with our tech team to find out exactly what these restrictions are, which I'll then send on to you via email.

Best,
Jon
