my buddy’s mom makes $82/hour on the internet.... (otherwise known as spam)

Would it be possible to block new users from posting URLs in their posts until they reach a certain post count (10, 15, 25 comments) in an effort to stem these spam posts at all?

I'm not really sure if it would be a credible way to reduce the amount of spam in comments myself but if new users were either blocked from posting links or at least put into a moderation pool it may help.

I'm pleased with the way the moderation is dealt with on the site but it does get annoying seeing all of these posts in the comments section.

While we're at it, my mom makes $1,337 per day from using the internet.... I only jest. ;p
