All private messaging is banned due to constant abuse.

You do realise that even your user name is SPAM.

We have disabled the PM feature of the forum as it was heavily abused and really ONLY used to spam users by people that couldn't find support in other ways. We do not intend on enabling the feature, for you or anyone else.
