Limiting new members spamming

Shouldn't there a post limit, be it per hour or day, for new members? Recently I've been noticing and reporting a few spammers.

That process seems to be broken...

all with "rover.ebay" links that have nothing to do with the OP's deal or discussion they might quote a poster.

thanks for your mod alert (image removed as we do not allow members to call each other out publicly). as mentioned here by schooby, not all posts are moderated, so we do depend on assistance from the community in addition to our own efforts. please continue to mod alert anything you wish to bring to our attention Smilie.

Oops sorry I completely forgot about that rule. Embarrassment So for new members, why isn't there a limit of like 3 posts a day like the limit of private messages?

What if a new member joined, made a few posts then found the deal of the year... and couldn't post it? laugh out loud
Yeah, we've had this discussion in-house too.

perhaps 3 posts/ 6 hour? That last spammer had 19 posts in high view threads in the first 10 minutes after joining and stopped after posting them. I doubt he'll use it ever again but make a new one.
