private messaging - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Hi Kirt,

Could you please enable private messaging on the forum? The spambots seem to be gone now, and I'd rather not commit the internet-crime of reviving old posts in thanking people. :)

Kind regards,
Charl

Greetings Charl:

OK, you convinced me. Private messaging has been enabled on a trial basis. Since the vast majority of the spam postings have been stopped with the addition of the math question during registration, maybe it is safe to try now.

To begin with, the mailbox size is set to 25 messages of storage as a safety measure to prevent the possibility of overwhelming the forum database with e-mail flooding. If all goes well, I'll increase the settings.

If you or anyone else hits a limits on your mailbox, please let me know.

Thanks for the suggestion :smt023
