I'm following this forum for months, but as I'm the opposite of "troll" I didn't have anything important to post so I havn't registered here.
Now I'm forced to troll some nonsense here first to be able to post something meaningfull elsewhere.

At least your not the only one that needs 5 posts to be able to post elsewhere, there are others that are on the same boat as you. It isn't great, but its the rules, and can't argue with that logic.


Agreed, and if you've been on the IMDB message boards, you'll know why these measures are necessary. The way various organised groups of crackpots and their sock-puppets so quickly spammed really well written threads minutes after their conception was really depressing. I began to wonder if there should be a 'posting delay' for each new thread, to encourage people to actually read them/think about their replies first! Also, 'waffling' is very far from trolling Wink

Wow.  Last time I was on this site was a couple years ago and I made 4 posts.  I was insanely confused today when I logged back in and no longer could find the reply button...

I feel restricted, but less so than what I may have felt previously had I been a newbie at the time.

So that's why there was no 'reply' button on the page.  Been lurking a while and just signed up.

Do such rules also help keep spambots out?

I'm afraid I have to correct myself: the 5 (or6) posts are totally ok, but the 4hours are a pain in the ass 
There are issues that I really want to answer to but I guess have to wait and wait and wait...

I would like to reply to this with a sensible post and get on my way to be established.

I think earning your way onto the boards is fair.

I have some technical hardware questions that I need some help with.

thank you all,

This was a good idea to go with. It shows who are legit users and who are the trolls.

A very sensible and justified policy, but also very frustrating for new members.
