Do you have an automatic promotion setup?

Double check unconfirmed user permissions.

Private Messages are enabled for your "Users Awaiting E-mail Confirmation" group. This is enabled by default so that if someone has trouble confirming their e-mails they can PM an admin about it.

Anyway, just edit that usergroup and remove the private message option.

No, not true at all. There is no setting to say you may only PM admins.

Try a search before posting for help. Many users won't, and don't, help if the question has been answered several times before.

If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.
I will NOT help via PM (you will be directed to post in the forums for help.)

Yeah, they are allowed to use Private Messaging so that they can contact admins - they're not restricted to only contacting admins.
