    Used to be that in order to post links, members here had to have at least 5 posts. This was meant to cut down on spam.

    With one of the recent forum updates, this restriction was (unintentionally?) removed, and I've noticed an uptick of spammers taking advantage of this.

    Like here.


    So... any way you can reinstate that restriction?

    Flower...
    This feature would drastically reduce your work load.... as would the ignore thread feature.
