How can I stop getting PMs from that annoying guy?
- Report him to have him banned
- Add him to your foes list, this should disallow PMs from that person (it does currently not)

So we achieve this by removing the permission check when replying. Of course thinking about it now, users can still abuse this if they are originally allowed to send messages and then lose their permission but because of this change may still reply to existing messages. Perhaps a new permission will be necessary (e.g. u_noreply) to make sure users cannot reply to any private messages?

I don't think we need or want this.
