There has been A LOT of spam lately. Specifically with the advent of the new website.
I propose that ALL newly registered accounts be limited to ONE post for a period of 36 hours and to only make newly registered accounts aware of that rule AFTER they have submitted their first post. (Obviously, moderators should be allowed to bypass that restriction once it’s verified that it’s legitimate.} This way, if it’s spam, there will only be one occurrence of the garbage prior to them being banned. Hopefully, when the ban is put into place it’s not only for the user name but also includes IP addresses.
