    I'm not shutting out any of our content.

    I did it once, and all it did was rack up 20,000 members with 0 posts.

    If they want to post, they will register.

    plus, google isn't a member, and i want him to see everything :)

    Well something should be done to keep the "I'm new" posts down. Not that I have a problem with new people to the forum, but it can reach a 50% saturation point pretty quickly.

    Yeah, then we can get into one of those "must make 2 posts before you can start a thread" things. Making that the primary thread, then another thread for comment, then first-time posting.

    I hate those "post first, thread later" rules, but 2 isn't a bad number (What's NASIOC at now.. 10?)

    lol, i had that happen on a mustang forum
    minimum post count of 10 to create a classified thread

    so i blew out 10 posts, made the classified, and then it got locked because my 10 posts were in 10 minutes
