    Since the change to the new software I've noticed a bit more spam on the board and I've also noticed that the spammers have post counts of 4 or 5. (Seriously 4 or 5 posts. I'm not making a joke there, though I would like to punch them in the face.)

    The old limit before posting links was 6, I believe. Would it be possible to up this slightly, back to 6 or even 10?

    You can see what I mean here, if the spammer hasn't posted more or the thread deleted already:

    It appears that the newer version of vBulletin (we upgraded to) no longer has this option.

    We've been thinking of how to deal with this problem and have not reached a conclusion as of yet.

    Hopefully the spam doesn't become too bothersome in the meantime.
