Can we institute some like 3-5 day waiting period for new members to make their first post?

This spam shit gets annoying.

How about a captcha where you have to identify a picture of a car? It'd really be a win-win, it'd keep stupid noobs out and it'd weed out a lot of bot spammers.

So only current members of DS would be allowed to become members of DS?

I'm no internetting expert, but I would think if a moderator had to approve the first two posts of a new member before they were allowed to post freely, that would probably eliminate 90% of the spammers and dorks.

So I approve, not that my approval is crucial one way or another.

I have been on some forums where you are forced to post only in the Newbie section until a mod can verify you are not a spammer and then you get allowed full access.
