Default annoying spam

Not sure if it's always been like that, but this morning there was quite a bit of spam message. Gets a little annoying, won't make me stop coming to the site, but just a little pain when I come to check new threads.

On another site that I frequent, there's a rule that you can't post links untill you've had 25 posts. And, I believe another website had it that you can't post for approximately 24 hours after creating your account.

Not sure how easy it would be to implement it, but I think it would minimize all the spam threads.

Spam is a never ending battle.

I'll check into what you've suggested.

thanks. It sucks when you actually open it and it's just junk!

One way to spot it in the New Posts is to look at the username of the poster. They usually come in batches from the same clown. Once you open one (that you already kinda know is spam from the thread title) you just ignore all his/her posts.
