Just a quick announcement that the restrictions in place now have lower thresholds. In the past to be able to post links or have a signature you needed to have:

150 posts and to be a member for at least 90 days

The new restrictions in affect are:

20 posts and to be a member for at least 30 days.

Will continue to monitor things to see how it goes.

but I thought the idea of calculating posts and interaction on a periodic time frame, was a great idea too.

either works for me, but then 90/150 didn't bother me either.

Personally, I think it's all kind of overkill. I hate spammers as much as the next guy, but honestly - if you tell them they can't post a link for more than a day, I don't think 80-90 percent of them would stick around. I imagine you would just have to tell them during the registration process, and they'd give up before they even finish registration.

Of course, I could be wrong.

I've seen spammers register then not visit for month (even years) then to go on a spree.

Spam has cut down so much since these measures were introduced.
