Well, the newbie restriction is very annoying ...
I posted also in the Whitelist reqest thread but that didn't help ...
So I'm forced to post 5 posts without sense ...
This just makes the things only worse as every new member has to create new junk stuff to become valid member ...
Don't you think that you might reconsider the rules?
Or create "junk" thread where everybody will post their 5 initial posts? ... But then why that? ... :-(

I doubt the post requirement alone would have any effect as you could just fill it by spamming.

But having to lurk around the forum for 4 hours straight might indeed put most trolls off.

Do you realize that you could remove about 65% of your spam if you simply banned Matthew N. Wright and Phinnaeus Gage?

Edit: After reading more of both of their posts it seems like they are paid forum plugs to keep the activity hot. One is overly nice and one overly rude but both work together on occasion.

yes, this 5 post rule is not so good. I understand the 4 hours rule, but why the 5 posts??

I'd much rather do my time and be paroled into a relatively spam-free board than deal with being prison sexed on a regular basis by a bunch of morons.  Granted, a dedicated spammer can just make five posts that sound halfway decent to be promoted to a level where they can just dump mindless BS on my head, but whatever.  At least it helps.

You and everyone else who uses this line of reasoning have two major unstated premises.

1. That even after conditioning users that post quality doesn't matter that they will suddenly start posting nothing but quality after 5 posts.
2. That the first 5 posts of a new user are always "junk" and hence should be kept in this forum.

I reject both of those premises.

I would like to see statistics on how many users on this forum have less than 5 posts. On some forums, there is an advantage to signing up even if you have no intention of posting. You can change useful forum settings such as posts per page or PM other members for direct conversations. That isn't the case with this forum as the first isn't implemented or available and the second is locked out to new users.

Now this is a newbie post with some quality to it.  It doesn't really matter what your opinionof our methods are, of course; but at least you have one.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."
