Can't send a PM

Someone has PMed me and now when I try to reply I receive a message saying "X has chosen not to receive private messages or may not be allowed to receive private messages. Therefore you may not send your message to him/her."
What reasons would I not be able to send someone a PM?

Perhaps his message box is full and needs to be emptied.

Re: Can't send a PM

I have to transfer my PMs to my email account all the time. Not saying I'm popular, just 50 message limit isn't enough and requires regular cleaning out.

Re: Can't send a PM

I think new Members have PM restrictions (for anti spam reasons) - not sure what those are, might be time and / or posts....so maybe the other Member is new? (should be a joining date under their Avatar).

Or could be that they have chosen to Block PM's (it is an option) - whether intentionally (and have forgotten they did that!) or accidently!

Re: Can't send a PM

New members need to have ten posts before they can PM. Even if the other person has the needed ten the OP does not. Anti-spam.
