Some fans (or alts of fans) see a game and just start posting new threads on whatever outrageous ideas are in their head without making effort to see if their great (or not so great) idea was posted before.  An example is recent posts by kirkwoodus13.

Requiring a minimum number of posts does help weed out the asshats, trolls, and enemy combatents

 

But it also discourages serious and friendly fans of other teams from starting a thread

A moderator review of any new threads by members with less than. 15 posts or something?

Isn't the board already self moderated for this?  When someone posts a really stupid thread, aren't they already verbally crucified and naturally deterred from ever doing it again?

Rather than deterring the behavior, some people seem to be fueled by it. Yeah, I don't get it....

On the flip side, maybe we should set an auto-permaban when someone hits 37k.  I mean, after 37k posts, what can one really have to offer.  Kind of like a term limit, so to speak.

There will always be wisdom and save advice from prolific posters. Just don't peddle that **** near me.

No.

 

Allowing newbies to start new threads actually weeds out the asshats faster than not allowing it.

Plus it's good fun for the rest of us.  The ensuing feeding frenzies that result from some of these ill conceived threads and "frickin abortions" are great for board morale and unity.  See the verbal stoning that occurred after the late johnnyp56 started a thread about Whaley's ineptitude and his difficulty with timestamps.  Everyone set aside their differences, temporarily forgot how much they hate Fire Chan or BADOL or me, and joined the angry mob.  It was beautiful.

This is not being considered. Thanks for the suggestion though.
