Spam Prevention & New Member Restrictions

Due to the rash of spammers posting advertisements on the site I have implemented restrictions that prevent New Members from posting links.
Any link posted by a New Member will be replaced with a link to our FAQ page.
I have also implemented a change to the way links are handled by regular members. Posting links works fine, but I have added a tag that makes search engines ignore the link. So posting a link to your personal website will let people link to it, but will not help your search engine rankings. This measure is in place to prevent spammers as well.

So, to summarize in large letters for those of you who do not want to read the description above:

1) Links posted by New Members are replaced with a link to the FAQ.

2) Links posted by all other members will work, but will be ignored by search engines.

So the girl I was replying to the other day wasn't real?

Jeez- I feel stupid for wondering why she wanted my credit card info to see her "side skirts". I even got some info on refinancing my mortgage in my apartment complex and a link on "How 2 grow my pen0r larg0r"

If I'm not mistaken, there are two factors involved first being the amount of posts you contribute and second - time....
welcome and enjoy

How about if you dont allow new members to make threads untill a certain amount of posts, and or a certain amount of time belonging to the mx6.com community of sexy people, with sexy cars. Just an idea.
