We could even make it a relatively low number? How many spammers are going to go to the trouble of writing 10 or even 5 legitimate on-topic posts just to get around the roadblock to then be able to spam? I would think they'd just move on to an easier target. Path of least resistance etc.AJBryant wrote:I like the img tag block for less than a certain number of posts.
Another thing we might consider is putting new members on moderated status -- that is, their messages have to wait for a moderator to approve or disapprove of them before they appear in the forum. Is that possible? I know a lot of e-mail groups I belong to do that, but it might be a different architecture on the site.
I'll have to look into if and how these different approaches might be implemented.
