I have to second that request.
The problem is you don't want to stifle the legitimate newcomers to Bitcoin, because we want the community to grow. However, with anything that garners attention, you get scammers and trolls.
We could also use some additional moderators to get rid of Reported posts.
Here's a few mods that may help:
Here's a mod that could be added to allow moderators to dock post count for spam posts (reported).http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=1007
This one would allow members to ignore other members:http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=2118
This one would allow "Time Online" to measure a Member's Rank, instead of just Post Count. This could be VERY useful, because it would force new users to read and be involved, but they wouldn't be able to post until they had been on the boards long enough:http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=1915
