Hi, I was aware that as a newbie I cannot post a forum post except to the newbie forum, but was never told that I cannot message another member.

Q1: Why is this crippling restriction omitted from the disclaimer?

Q2: Now many forum posts does it take to be able to message another member?

IMHO, people will just make useless posts in the Newbie forum to get around this restriction, thus it's pointless and a time waster for everyone.

It is not ommited, as can be seen here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=15958.msg209292#msg209292

Q2: Now many forum posts does it take to be able to message another member?
You should be able to send a PM now as you have a couple of posts.

Hope it helps.

Yeah, I've also seen that now.

What I mean by "it's not disclosed" is, when you register they make you prominently aware of the fact that you may not post anywhere but in the newbie forum, but they don't make you aware of the fact that you cannot send a message. Took me a few minutes to figure out.
