  3. I have imposed a new requirement today limiting who can start and receive private conversations. This is in an effort to thwart scammers who have a zero post count but private message others offering to sell their licenses. The restriction is not strict, a user must post at least one (1) post in the forum before being allowed to start and/or receive private conversations. Read Forum Post

    Then the user can at least check if the user is using duplicate accounts. Also, especially with XenForo licenses, if they don't have a WTS XenForo thread, it is probably because the license is not transferrable.
    Thanks for your opinion though.

    A simple Cookie Change(delete), new IP Or VNC and the duplicate check fails...

    Correct. Not sure why you are fighting this but it isn't to much to ask for. I do not look at conversations so I can't keep an eye on everyone who registers and just uses the conversation feature. I do however read every post on the forum which allows my staff and I to analyze what we see and dig deeper on any user we feel may be up to no good.

    Correct, which makes the whole thing ironic because he posted in this thread.
    Actually, we use a few different tools/addons which were modified for this site.

    It runs on a cron. After you make your first post, you should have the new permissions after about an hour if not sooner.
