- You need 20 posts to be able to use the PM function:
The problem comes from drive by spammers, who having registered put objectionable or commercial links in their profile signature to try and gain link promotion, etc.

There have also been cases of the PM function being abused to spam forum members, so you will notice that you can't use the PM function either.

Unfortunately because of the actions of others legitimate members suffer by the actions to prevent this spamming.

Thanks David.. I understand the reasoning -- perhaps somwhere when you first register that could be mentioned!

You're welcome, bow you have reached 20 no problem, you have changed your settings and included your flag.

What this also allows you to do is add your signature giving a brief outline of your system spec and other security applications you use. Check out other signatures for examples.

So we have to post 20 times, before we can update our profile. Thanks for letting me know how I can get my profile updated.
