Correct. Those who originally set up this forum seemed to be very adamant on "No join to buy/sell".
"You must have more than 20 posts, and have been a member for 20 days, or have a $tromtrooper Membership, before posting in this section. No "Join to Sell" allowed."
Perhaps it was a tempter to get people to have a paid membership. There is also the constant struggle with spammers.
As Houstrom46 suggests go into your User Profile and go through all the messaging settings. The default settings always seem to be incorrectly set. Or try a visitor message.
