I wanted to send a reply to Vintage Tailor, who sent me a private message during my free membership time. Apparently my free membership has expired, because it says that free members cannot post private messages except in reply to one they have already received. I received the private message, but now I cannot reply.

You should be able to reply to it -- don't change the subject heading (I tried that once and got a message about how I could only reply to the message so-and-so had sent me). If that doesn't work, you should e-mail PR support. Free members are as far as I know still allowed to reply to a PM from a FoPR member.

I only have a free membership and I reply to messages sent by a paid member all the time. I even change the subject line often without a problem.

Don't try to start a new message, just use the "reply" button on the message Vintage Tailor sent to you and you should be fine.

It will say in big red letters at the top of the page that free members cannot send new messages but that doesn't mean you can't reply to messages sent to you.

You were not able to send the PM because that message was more than 30 days old. That said, I've increased it to 6 months now so go ahead and reply to it.

Some non-paid members send PMs all the time (not just replies).
How does that work?

OK, that explains why I got that message when I changed the subject line. It was an older message I was replying to.

I'll be interested to hear the reply to this. I sure can't do that.

I just meant, as a free member I can't send PMs except as a direct reply to a FoPR's PM. (I think this is normal, right?) The poster I was replying to said that some non-paying members regularly sent PMs, not just replies, which surprised me.
