Sorry, it was disabled because this forum is overrun by spam. I deleted a spammer and its message just now, and have to do so almost every day. It's discussed in the Spam thread a few topics away from this thread:

Private messaging was the first thing we had to disable, because we don't know when spam happens there and so can't clean it up. Unfortunately, phpBB offers no way to read your old messages, but if you still have unread ones, they must be very old, from before we disabled them - and they're probably spam.
