Is there a way to cap the number of posts a newbie can make?  Like no more than 5 posts a day until they hit 25 posts or so? Every board has to deal with this stuff at some point, sadly.

There is a cap.  Vyndanian managed to answer the Tri Tac questions I have been using to keep the scammers out and get himself registered as a Field Agent instead of a Rookie.  I think I've closed the loophole, but the permissions are sort of a mess.  I ported the forums to SMF from a different software that had glitched so badly it wouldn't save or upgrade, so the only other option was to lose everything and start over.  So I hand rebuilt them.

I have upgraded the forums and pruned a bunch of crap.  I think this should take care of the issues.
