Default Bot Streaming Links

It seems we are awash with Bots that post streaming links on their first post. Is it possible to limit new members from posting any links or new threads until they have replied by text to at least 5 or more posts?

Thank you!

Mike

Good idea Cowboy. I've been removing this rubbish on a daily basis (up until last week's necessary visit to Mayo Clinic). I am getting damned sick of these bots.

The same here. I've requested site support to do something to limit... Let's see what they can do.
