You have spammers coming out of the woodwork! I just saw one newbie probably spam all the news articles with the same add. I say probably, because I didn't check them all just the ones I got a new comment ping. They were all the same user with the same post. This must put an extra load on the mods. Is there a way you could force them to only post to 2 threads the first 24 hrs then allow how many posts they have posted todate plus 1? That would be OK for a real person but would 'kill' a spammer. It would require too much of an investment by having to dream up real postings for a few days before they can rampage. A real newbie will probably post to 1 or possible 2 threads and then reply to the same threads because they got replies. No one is going to save up a dozen different technical questions then ask them all at once. The normal user will only have 1 problem to post. The 2 tread rule will also reduce triple postings at least for the first day. Spammers will learn fast AD sucks for spamming. Then the mods can do moderating instead of garbage detail.
