    Default People with status validating

    They are allowed to send private messages.

    Example simon235, I think he's a scammer. Offering on all my items, insane prices.

    He sends me pms, but I cannot pm him back as his status is still "validating".

    Would be a good thing to disable private messages for those people who r still "validating" their account.

    Also people that are banned are allowed to send private messages.... I don't understand how this is/should be possible...

    If you don't believe me, I have screens. Anyways, something is wrong here I think.

    Cannot imagine people with status banned/validating should be allowed to send private messages.

    Validating usergroup should no longer be able to send a private message; however, if someone has a "banned" tagged it doesn't mean that they are actually banned.

    There are two cases where member could have a "banned" tag;

    1) He/she is actually banned and if this is the case, he/she can NOT send a pm or do anything on his/her account.

    2) Inactive accounts also get "banned" tag even though they are not banned.

    I believe that you received a private message from a member who had been away for a long time but I'd like to confirm it if you could forward me the private message you received from this banned person.
