    When someone signs up their first post should be screened by a mod before actually being displayed.

    I had started a thread in News/Feedback about all this spam. As Bird wrote, today is bad and a week or so back we had a bad batch posted.
    I doubt the mods would have time to review each first post. I suggested using one of those bots screens in which one must type in a code (random characters in different fonts) when joining or logging in.

    I remember reading that.

    I do suppose it would pile up pretty quickly. All I know is that this BS has got to stop!!

    Maybe a set up where first posts can be deleted after a certain number of members over a cetain post count click a delete thread button but only on threads by new users.

    This idea has merit....the foundation would be that if several members who had achieved a certain level of veracity reported a new member post, then it would be removed for review by a moderator....
