So what prevents somebody from spamming a massive thread like this 5 times doing:

+1

and then just leaving their account logged in for 4 hours while they sleep or something?
Every time a block is mined, a certain amount of BTC (called the subsidy) is created out of thin air and given to the miner. The subsidy halves every four years and will reach 0 in about 130 years.

Logged in time doesn't work like that.

There is a time out then?  I have been logged in over an hour and just having the site in the bg while I surf another site.

Yes, there is a time out.  I don't know what the number is but you can't just leave this open in the background and get your hours that way.

The whole point is so you read about bitcoin before going everywhere else on the forum and act retarded.

I just had a pointless post deleted so I guess the mods crack down on pointless posting.  That would stop a lot of it I guess if they monitor these threads closely (which it seems they do given that my post was up less than 5 minutes).

Seems like they keep a tight lid.  I was just "logged" off right after his post even though I was just responding in another thread.

Due to a mass of trolling, only established posters are able to post in non-newbie sections. You are considered "established" if you have spent 4 hours online and have made 5 posts (new topics or replies).

If you have really good posts, you can post a request for preemptive whitelisting in the appropriate topic.

Also:
- Newbies cannot upload their own avatars.
- You must have made one post in order to send PMs.
- You need 10 posts to put a link in your signature.

Note that it may take up to 10 minutes for your PM or posting permissions to be granted. (The system automatically checks every 10 minutes and promotes people as appropriate.)

It sucks being a newb!!

The explanations here make sense, but it still doesn't tell me why I've been here for weeks and still don't have the 4 hours required...  I guarantee you that I have more than the 4 hours at this point reading threads and such.  Now time spent posting might be below that, but other than making spammy-ish posts, I really don't have that much to say that I can fill up 4 hours with posting...
