Restrictions won't stop HARDCORE newbies.. and the ones that just troll around, aren't harmful.

Hardcore newbies the ones who are harmful! Smiley

I dont like the restriction either - as I want to post some development stuff in the development part (and not the newbie section) and can't!
other forums or bitcoin sites use other rating sources by the way!
for example your ebay account with (in my case 118 positive) votes - which you could easily verify by sending a message to the bitcointalk profile there (if one existed).
if you scewed up you and your ebay account would be blacklisted.
it just needs some "moderators" - thats probably the problem with those rating solutions.

Yes, but that will also mean spamming ... so be careful with that. Best thing to do, is to make some useful posts or at least something interesting.

Bitcoiners don't use Ebay much, and even it we did, the act of using another website's ratings undermines the autonomy of the membership.  That's kinda antiethical to the Bitcoin community.

Insulting the mods while you are still a newb isn't a good way to make it out of newb hell.  If you can't manage to make 5 posts along the lines of "hi, I'm not a bot" without getting bent at the established system, feel free to start your own bitcoin forum.

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."

Low value posts aren't really 'spam' unless you have some ad in your sig.  The point is that a human being can manage to post five times in the newb section and sound like a real person responding to other low content posts.  A bot will flail trying to post in the other sections, because this rule is uncommon, and hopefully those kind of people that just move from forum to forum trolling for cheap amusment will prove too impatient to post five times and read the forum for a couple hours before having something to 'contribute' and thus move on.

Does this include replies, or do you actually have to start a thread?

It does include replies.

I think even though this is only my second post the rules make sense this way.  It forces alittle interaction which can lead to greater things.  I seem to be viewed as a lurker sometimes because ill throw my two cents in and then read alot.  but any time i feel i have something important that i should say i do it.  i do like reading though.  It keeps me informed.

I think this rule will be lifted once the forum slows down. But by then people would have lost interest... So no biggie either way.

Having bots spam a forum is the quickest way to force people away.

A healthy forum has useful information and spirited discussion.  New and useful content attracts traffic (and ad clicks).

I can't disagree with the policy when you see the effects bots have on other sites.
