I have no problem binning ignorant nonsensical posts if I get the impression that the person is either hopelessly clueless, unwilling to learn or is just trolling.
it's apparent that a slow stream of subjectivist audiophiles is heading our way, and it's not bringing any light, just heat. What do we do about it?
doom9.org doesn't let you post for five days after registering there.
And no one knows whether I am a music pirate or not. I bet more than half of the posters are and no one was ever blaming them.
Seriously, how hard would it be just to approve any first post for the mods? That would be the most effective way to avoid spam and the least annoying for users.If my calculations and intuition are somewhat right, HA get's 30 users/day, but it doesn't even seem like we get so many posts anyway.
