Is there a rationale why private messaging is disabled?

Because of spammers.

I'm on several other phpBB boards and they all have issues with unsolicited POSTS, but I've never gotten an unsolicited PM. IMO the value of PM facility outweighs the risk. If you want to build a robust community, that is.

This forum gets so much spam we had no choice but to disable PMs.

If you want to help build this community there are better ways than PMs.
