It sounds reasonable to filter out those that are just trolling.  Smiley

Once you get past the newbie period, you are now part of a forum that has done some attempt at filtering out trolls.  It can be more enjoyable knowing that most of the members are not here trolling.

Seems pretty sensible, considering how bad some forums can get.

What is sad is the fact that you have not read the rules.

1. you need 4 hours
2. you need >5 posts
8 hours only  satisfies one requirement.

Makes sense. Still a little annoying though, couldn't you just use more anti-spam measures rather than locking people out though?

Even night clubs these days make people queue outside and only the good looking people get let in first. Antispam measures are usually IP blocking methods. but with many people using TOR for their genuine anonymity unrelated to spamming (drug pushers etc). Which seems to be a well valued right of BTC. Stopping IP addresses of spamming trolls is just going to block many non spamming users too.

Spammers that use to do it the TOR way would just click 'use new identity' to be given a fresh new node IP. so blocking every IP is not the solution. plus its not much of a prevention. It is basically like letting in all the riff raff into a night club then throwing out anyone that looks the same whether they caused the trouble or not.. In bitcoin terms that is a large percentage use TOR. so I find queuing outside for 4 hours better, knowing I hopefully will have a relaxed atmosphere inside for many months

and on that note 2 hours to go Cheesy

Welcome to the land of grey clouds!

On a related note, it looks like I have finally got Bitstamp to work, using a SEPA payment.  Only 2 business days to find out if I'm right.

It is a good way to select those who have nothing better to do than standing in line for 4 hours. Of those who have a life this web site gets only those who can write a bot in much less than 4 hours that fulfills the requirement for them. Smiley
