    Why the limit with what you can view on the board by post count?

    Number of responses =/= being a contributing member.

    It helps to reduce people joining just to spam links. This has been discussed before and the admin and mods don't plan to change these rules. It's only 10 posts anyway, so it's not a big deal.

    I understand limiting link access, but setting up an account should be enough of a deterrent.

    Not at all. Setting up an account is very quick and simple. I've been here since June and have seen virtually no spam threads. PC mods must be doing something right

    This was really more of an exercise to post about my lack of necessary posts in an area that doesn't increase post count.

    Spammers use programs to automate setting up accts on internet forums, so no, it's not a deterrent.

    Another thread on this issue:

    As is pointed out in this thread, the 10-post requirement is here to stay.

    Ok, I'll just add another to my post count and go from 5 to 6. Don't like to post for no reason. Is there a forum or thread where we can run up out post count without troubling others?

    Accounts must be validated before access to forum. Simple as that.

    EDIT - I have moderated and ran previous forums before, and I appreciate steps to limit spam/link farming. I thought that my last statement pointed out my lack of seriousness.

    It works. It's simple. And there is not anything that is really that much better. There are other options but is 10 post on the MOST active cell phone forum on the internet that much to ask?
    My vote is leave it. We have more important things to worry about and discus. like what is going to happen with Palm and WebOS. And will that come to the Plate soon with a 4G
    Sprint: 2-TouchPad 32g, Frank.-Pre-2, Pre-, MiFi & 1-LG Lotus with Xlink tied to home handsets. Backups: 650 & 700wx

    HP Please release the CDMA Pre3 phones!
    We want them!!!

    It is either the rule or the spammers.
    Thanks for keeping our forums clean.
