User may not be contacted directly

I received a message from a buyer but when I click on it to read it I get an orange banner at the top of my screen that reads… “For privacy reasons, this user may not be contacted directly.” Huh? What the heck does this mean and how do I get back to this guy? And if I can’t, can this have a negative impact on me? Why would anyone send a message to a person that can’t write back? Also, I’m not sure where to post this so I’m posting it here. Maybe someone can say where to post simple questions like this in the future.

Oh, OK. Thanks a lot. I’ll remember that next time.

Is usually means they broke the T&Cs of Fiverr. Perhaps they were spamming.
