Noctua suggested that I perhaps inquire here about private messaging on Latin D. Is it blocked for new users to prevent spam? When is the feature unblocked? at 25 messages?

It is unlocked after a certain number of posts, and I think the number is indeed 25.

Note that posts in the "Games" and "Jokes and Humor" subforums don't count.

Just an addition: the new users are only blocked to initiate a private conversation, but if anyone else initiates it with them (or includes them in it), they can, of course, take part in it ;) A friendly work-around for a new users would be to ask someone on the public forum unobtrusively (=that could be problematic sometimes) to PM them, but, obviously, that may be obtrusive*, mainly if the new user simply requires individual Latin advice which should be given in public instead of PM (which is one of the reasons the newbies cannot initiate the conversation themselves: not to bother experienced Latinists with Latin-oriented questions which SHOULD be discussed in public for the benefit of all).

*and hence the older user may decline
