    That´s the way to avoid this, new members should not be able to PM.

      Does anyone know the link they send, would be handy to blacklist it.

      Also good suggestion in regards to not letting new members PM, thanks!

                    Actually, that's a crappy way to avoid it, because it means that you can't send welcome PMs to new members. I've suggested that send and receive PM permissions be separated, but it's anyone's guess if this will ever be implemented.

                      Actually, I do think the welcome PM is sent anyway - need to check that.

                      In any case, for me the security is more important than the feature.

                        It isn't sent.

                              I have no doubt they will multiply.

                                I think you are right - maybe antispam features should be implemented for new members ?
