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.
