I will see what I can do to put a screening check on the 1st post by a forum member.
This may annoy some new members, as they will not be able to post anything further until the 1st post is reviewed and approved - but it will keep the garbage out.

Give me a few days.

TY.  Although, honestly, I'd expect expect new members to understand the need for delayed posting, especially if given the reason why (even a one line explanation).  Heck, we all understand the damage unregulated spam can cause, and besides, a number of forums utilize this exact same method. :)
