Topic: Remove / Disable Members To Email Each Other - Member Poaching

I've got members that I believe are spamming other members to join another forum using email.  I've got the private message mod loaded and I'd like to force communication through PM so I can prohibit (and track) people that are poaching my members using email.

Is there an EASY way to disable the ability for members to use the forum to send emails?

I guess one option is to edit the code to strip out the display of the email link under the user's name and in their profile.

Anybody else ever deal with member stealing / poaching?

Set everyone's user options to disable form email, then set the defaults to disable form email, then change the code to disallow any changes.

Very good idea.   The only issue is if I want to change the settings back in the future I won't know who was set as what before I made the change.   I guess I could export the current settings and save them and then import them if I go back.
