How about getting rid of the verifications before sending a PM? Annoying as hell, never seen it on other sites...

Rick, to send a PM I compose, I must type in a goofy set up letters, then answer 2 questions, 1 of which are you human?

Ok, gotcha. The reason that a new member has to verify with those questions when signing up is to avoid the automatic spam. I set it up with those questions for security reasons. A new member also had to have a minimum of 5 post counts before they could freely send pm's, this was a default setting, again for security reasions so the spam dorks dont mass send pm's before I can delete their account. I didnt realise this was happening with pm's too, so after checking around in the settings, I set the post count to 0. Let me know if there is any more hang ups.

This whole spam deal is pretty bad, and with new forums, they really hit them hard. I bet for every legit member we have had sign up, I have had to delete one that is spam.

Hope this helps y'all out, and please, let me know if something on the site is not right or annoying  ;)
