To discourage spammers.
What's the reasoning behind 50 posts prior to pm'ing? I'm surprised we don't see more threads with...
1 . . .
2 . . .
3 . . .
etc. as people try to get to 50 posts. Maybe there is a good reason? If not, drop it.
To discourage spammers.
A lot of the time the people wanting to PM or post links right away are either spammers or people looking for AAS sources anyways. Get a few PMs every week asking "where i can get roids lol".

Was it changed from 20? I remember when I first started, it was 20. I eventually got 20, then it said 50. I'm good now, but I don't see the difference between 20 and 50 when it comes to spammers....I'd imagine they'd (or their software) would try a few times and give up.
It's made things way better IMO! But there is still alot of retards that just post crap so they can ask for sources. Nature of the game I guess.
I think its a good idea. Keep spammers off of ironmag.
i had pms before i had 50 posts and had to make a bunch of bullshit posts in order to reply... i tried to make them as not duechy as possible but still got negative repped... catch 22 i suppose.. spammers suck
Douchebags suck as well.

shoot only 34..well 35 nowthnx
Sucks for Non Spammers who have issues that cant me posted gor all to see.
