    Default Join + Mass Posts = Sell your crap?

    I'm seeing this a lot lately. People with a join date of, say, today, and already have 30 posts, just posting like mad to be able to sell their crap.

    Example: https://www.hkpro.com/forum/members/60522.html

    A lot of forums are starting to place a higher post minimum, or adding a 6-month join wait sort of thing.

    Its just getting old seeing these new members with crap posts just littering the "New Posts" search feature - which I know a LOT of us use.

    The other thing that pisses me off is the swath of necro-posts by these people, as well as the needless bumping of a couple-day old threads by adding *nothing* of value to the conversation and wasting our time thinking there may be something new worth reading in these old threads.

    I'm not saying anything like "content filter" but my lord, it gets old.

    Its kind of a fun game I play whenever I see a new name chime in with a 4 or 5 word fluff responses to a thread. I always ask myself "what are they gonna post for sale?"

    It does get tiresome though.

    That picture is perfect by the way. Do you have one for "get off my lawn" :-)

    We used to have a thread in the Forum Issues forum where we would post the offending sandbaggers. But too bad it was removed after a few months. I wish they would bring it back.

    Yes, it is getting old and I am sick of it.

    Notified the mod at 16 posts. By the time I hit "new posts" again, he was already at 30.

    This is the reason he's sandbagging: to sell USP mags! But he didn't know that he could not sell until March 27th.

    Typically, we do. It still doesnt change the annoyance, or troll factor.
