I was trying to post a link to another post inside this forums and it kept telling me I couldn't post links to other sites until I had 10 posts. Other sites? I was trying to link to: .... Well crap, I can't post the link without messing it up. So take out the spaces after http and www
http ://www

This is the message I get
You are only allowed to post URLs to other sites after you have made 10 posts or more.

The reason for that, I assume, is to prevent spammers and phreaks from posting url's as soon as they register. It only takes a post or two for the mod's to catch and ban them. If they were allowed to register and post a url right away then they could use this forum and unsuspecting viewers to spread a virus, a trojan, spyware, ect...

The 10 post thing is to protect us from these spammers and phreaks of nature....
