Default Spammers

It seems like the spamming on this board has gotten to epic proportions. Maybe the solution would be to let new members not start any threads until they have at least 50 posts. I think that would greatly reduce the amount of spam threads that are created in the boards that clog up everything. Just an idea.

A freak without instruction, is headed for self destruction!!!

It's time to give the spammers their own thread.

agreed I joined the fourms to talk about guns and entered the collectors market but everyday at least 3-5 spam on long guns. 50 days will deter spammers creating new accounts.

Maybe the admins need to implement an approval procedure for new accounts, similar to other forums.

Both those suggestions are problematic and may not be feasible given the coding of the site or would be labor intensive.

A better solution IMHO would be to auto delete any thread that has "VS" in the first post.

Would get 99% of them.

Why is it the guys who really know how to fix this country's problems spend all their time fixing old cars?

On the other hand, if a spammer donates $5 to Calguns for each thread, why stop it? generates money. Might be happening already.
