It is to ensure only genuine people can use PMs rather than spammers and other perverts.

Hi
The PM limit is so that we weed out most of the PM spambots and many other spammers.

fair enough but it makes it hard for newbies trying to send messages that are legit

If you click on anyone's 'profile' you can send them a private message via the board. The profile is found in the little icon under their name - the icon looks like a small picture frame with a picture in it.
Once you have sent a message this way, the person is alerted to the private message every time he/she logs in. This leaves a message at the top of the page.  You can manage this mailbox yourself, and carry on private conversations via the mailbox if you like.
The 'preferences' in this mailbox allows you to block any unwanted private mail from a user.

While your messages may be humorous to you, they are basically weird and hardly relevant to the areas you posted in.

Your misuse of the English language makes it difficult for people to understand, especially those who are not native speakers. This is an international site with a large number of non-English speaking members.

Whilst not being spam in the accepted sense of things, i.e. you are not trying to trick people into visiting web sites selling dubious products, it is spam in the sense that it is often meaningless drivel.

You are not permitted to send private messages until you have made at least 20 posts. Again a protection against spammers and other weirdos.

The Knee Guru is the site owner and as such it is well within their rights to moderate however they want to.

Hi moo in space
To PM you need to have 20 posts. You might have had 20 but I keep deleting them because of the content.

If you want the 20 posts, try playing some of the games in the games room on the site, rather than posting around at random with messages that are not very relevant to the post. Maybe I do have a problem with a certain brand of humour, but this is meant to be a professional site and I will do my best to keep it that way.

Thank YOU for the advice and for keeping the board professional.  I have gained insight here that I would never have found elsewhere. 
The experiences of real people going through all of this in their unique way is invaluable when trying to determine if you are "normal" in your own recovery.  I do hope that made sense!
