Not certain, but I don't believe there's a time factor. We've had members with a year or two but low post counts run into difficulty. I suspect the recent change has affected some (like Neilsen) who may have been able to post after 5 posts before. the change.

Anyhow we do get a lot of 'spammers' joining, and we can usually get them gone before they start sending spam PMs, so overall it's a good measure and should encourage participation of legitimate joins...
