I don't think this will help the cause of you going to other parts of the forum.

I'm very sympathetic to policies designed to combat spam. It's pretty grotty stuff. Surely there are better ways, no?

Couldn't users be required to fill in a captcha for the first 20 messages or something? This unusual policy is a high barrier to entry for legitimate potential members of the community.

No because then they could still post spam.

I think most legitimate users are. It sucks a bit but it's something we have to deal with until every spammer is rounded up and sent to troll island where they can screw around with each other all day and find out just how fun it really is.
