I'm currently facing an issue where I can't respond to people that have PM'ed me. I don't have sufficient reputation to respond.
Now, I can fully understand restricting sending new PM's to new users. I've built several PHP forums from scratch and setup many others, so I'm aware of the reason.. but when it comes to responding to someone who PM'ed *me*, it's *really* frustrating to not be able to respond. Moreso because there's no reason why someone who contacted me should be punished by my inability to say anything in return (especially since they had a reason to expect a response).
Could some admin come in and enable that ability for me? Or, alternatively, enable responding to PMs.
