PM Spam
 
We've had a PM spammer again tonight. :mad: I've deleted that user and all PMs sent by him and the installed a vBulletin plugin that allows new users to send PMs only if they've made a minimum of three forum posts (except users of the ISPConfig Developers group and HowtoForge subscribers - they can send PMs no matter how many posts they've made).

I'm not happy with this solution, but it's the best I can think of right now...

If only I could bill someone for the time I've wasted in my life for fighting spammers... :mad:
