    Spam filter - new user post delay

    I know you do a great job deleting posts like the recent attack from immature Tardtenpodick. Just wondering: Could your BB software prevent posts from new forum users to be displayed until a moderator had seen it? Say first 3 posts?

    There was a spammer overnight.
    I've removed the messages and the spammer, and banned them.

    The difficulty is balancing ease of access for new forum members with security to prevent spammers.
    Many people using this forum have never used forums before. So we try to make it easy for novice users.
    Regardless of what security we put in place there will always be spammers. Generally the best defense is just to ignore them until the moderators clean them out of the forum.
