The idea is that a new member will participate in discussions and actually become a useful asset to the forum. Without minimum posts, you get first time posters coming in to post for sale ads and such. As noted, the drawback is that some will just post useless crap to get to the post count.

why do they use post min limits?
It helps keep spammers away.
It doesn't take many posts anyway.

Post whores have no decency.

This is the problem with forums that have post limits to enter some areas - you have post whores sh****g out useless posts like this one to reach that post count.

I've got a few words on this subject too.

There's no greater pita than screwing around on the board with a deal gone bad.

Almost every time there's a low post bunny involved. Somebody who's here only to buy or sell something; not a member of the community in any sense.

If I had my druthers, the post limit for classifieds or pms would be 200. And anyone post whoring to get there gets banned.

:geezer: (ok, it's cold in GA an neither the truck or the dozer will start) Rant off.

Arrrg! true is that ... hmm, I thought you worked the last deal out.

this is going to take some time, even to get to 10 posts.

(I just want to get back into the library, I promise!) :)

This is gonna be a walk down memory lane.

SOPA, PIPA vote Jan. 24 2012. If you think this kind of outage is a problem wait until this passes.

Contact your Representative and oppose it.
