    As soon as I upgrade to vb 3.6 there will be a new rule: new members will not be able to use the [url] vbcode.

    I started a similar list as this on one of my forums but quickly abandoned it because the email addresses started to become really spammy in and of themselves. The extra time it took also got annoying.

    We were forced to go to pre-moderation of all new member posts on all of our forums, maybe you need to do the same thing on your forums.
