I can't start a help thread in the Suggestions forum because it says I don't have access/permission, even though it's not a "paid" forum.

So, here's my question:

I was a paid subscriber, not so anymore
I have 141 messages in my PM box, left over from when I was "paid."
Now, I'm unpaid, and it says my limit is 15.
I can't send messages, even if I don't save one to my "sent" box, because my PM thingy gets all mad at me for being over the limit all of a sudden.

Do I have to go and delete everything to be able to send PMs again??? That is super crappy if so. I should be able to hang onto what I had (lovely conversations with people!), I think, without hindering my ability to message.

Boo hiss.
