to force n00bs to read the rules and stickies and to learn how to search for threads on the same topic which explains how the limit is removed

It's to stop dodgy spamsters, of which there have been many.

Patience is a special virtue. Nurture it and be serene.

(I don't have any, though)

Re: Why are the personal msgs limited?

Because the servers overheat, and that causes the building to become hot, which causes the snow to melt, which floods the streets, which causes displacement of people in the cities, which causes economic hardship, which causes people to flee the country, which causes overpopulation in neighboring countries, which causes resources to become even scarcer, which causes poor people to not be able to eat, which causes riots, which causes countries to go to war with one another to stop people from rioting, which causes people to be killed, and we don't want people to be killed, because that's bad.

You can believe that or you can search for the right answer.

Go to the library. Find the Yellow Pages. Find the pages pertaining to your field of speciality. Photocopy them. Send out lots of CVs. Use the internet merely for lulz and scrapping. Be serene.

Can't agree with you more DB... especially with such a complex forum like EF.

Patience is important, especially from the n00bs... to read and understand the many guides in place, some people went to a major expense (in personal time) to write all the guides/stickies (hats off to them). If a valid question arises, no problem... there appears to be plenty of experience around to point the n00bs in the right direction. On the other hand, when a question is asked that is clearly answered in a posted sticky...
