I was sending some IMs
, and I received the following message:
In order to prevent the spamming of site users by IM, the system will currently allow you to send unsolicited
IMs OR E-MAILS
only a few times, (more for premium members)
after which you will see the message above and will be unable to send more. However
, you are normally able to send IMs
to members that you have communicated with before and who are still in your IM history, and if a member responds to your IM, it is not "unsolicited." IMs drop out of the database after a couple of weeks, so even if you have communicated with a member before, it may appear as an unsolicited IM to the system for that reason.
|HOWEVER: Because the system does allow a few unsolicited instant messages per day, this should not be construed as permitting SPAM of any type. SPAM is not welcome anywhere on this site.|
The count will reset each day, so if this happens to you, simply wait until the next day.
