#7949 new enhancement

Restrict private messages sent via ID to only friends to prevent spam

Description

When sending a private message from your own profile via "Compose", the ability of being able to send a message to a user via ID has allowed a bot to send a spam message to all users.

Can messages sent via ID filter out non-friends to prevent this?

You can use this plugin for now: https://github.com/r-a-y/bp-pms-for-friends

Might be time to merge that into Core. If so, would have to be considerate of other plugins like BP Follow.
