Agreed, the 5 posts before permitting PM rule is certainly not normative.

If an odd but important local rule exists here, perhaps it would make sense to post that information more prominently. When I poked through the sticky posts trying to get a sense of the community, I didnít recall seeing anything about PM policy.

Maybe the registration welcome email could be edited to help on-board new users, by including a suitable link or some quick rules of the road.

The sort of people inclined to abuse PM will likely write anything to get their 5 post minimum, and new members attempting to legitimately buy products or services could feel less than welcomed. Which is not what someone would expect in a place that seems filled with so many knowledgeable and genuinely helpful members.

Well, I could not find a better place than here to make my first post so I can PM someone.

I am sure there is a reason for having to make 1 post, but I have never encountered this requirement anywhere else before.

...and now I have to wait an hour. Odd.
