Default Mods: delay posting priveleges of new registrants?

Hi Mods!!!

ISTM that there ought to be a way to approve registrants before they begin to post. If that were the case, then at least the number of people who post ads about TV shows would be minimized and limited to the day

Thanks for all your work

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."
CS Lewis–God in the Dock, 1948

Or at least disable links in posts for a while please.
“Being Christian is not the result of an ethical choice or a lofty idea, but the encounter with an event, a person, which gives life a new horizon and a decisive direction....There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him."

I know it's annoying when someone posts spam, but some new posters come on here because they have urgent advice or prayer needs. I don't think they should be punished just because some people don't want to look at thread titles about the new episode of New Girl.

Make links a privilage for New Members (as opposed to Trial Members) and above.

The tech staff is working on this situation.

Meanwhile, take note that spam like that is never on here very long anyway.

Ecclesiastes 1:10 Nothing under the sun is new, neither is any man able to say:
Behold this is new: for it hath already gone before in the ages that were before us.
