How was this determined? "To be able to post links or images your post count must be 10 or greater. You currently have 6 posts.

Please remove links from your message, then you will be able to submit your post."

I have never encountered such a stupid rule on any forum anywhere!!!

As with most rules, I'm sure there's a reason for it. But most people just cleverly find a work around and don't complain about it.

Really? lol
It is a very common rule.

As much as the BBF Mods love chasing spammers around (*cough*), the 10 posts rule is great. It helps us to easily spot and remove thread-crappers who are posting nonsense just so that they can get to 10 posts and start leaving their spam-advertising links everywhere.

It can be a little frustrating to real users, but it is a massive help in keeping BBF "tidy" in these days of almost non-stop spam attempts

Seriously? You've been a member since 2008 and haven't posted 10 times?

Wow.
