A Warning to New Users

... if your very first post is in here, you're going to be looked at very suspiciously as a spammer, unless you somehow demonstrate that you're a real person with an interest in this board's content.

Is there a way to limit new users' posting abilities? For example, they're locked into only one post per day unless they PM an admin? Or maybe have new posters limited to a specific forum unless they prove they're human?

I don't like the idea of punishing new users for spam issues, but it's getting out of hand.

I began to answer this, and then realized that with a human spammer, any response I wrote about current spam-fighting strategies in place, or potential future ones, might be read by him.

Let's just say that I'm doing what I can as a "fireman" and talking with Theo about other items. In the meantime, the best way you guys can help us is through your patience.
