Default Fight the Spam

Ive seen more of the old spam today "Get a free laptop".
I think there is a way you could put a stop to this you could configure vbulletin so that you can only post in the Advertising forums with 10 posts, say if you have 0 you cant post
Yes people will spam in other areas of the board but watya think i think its a good idea!

here, here, SPAM is filling this board like wild fire ... we need to put a stop to it, i have a good idea, new user with less then 5 post have there post moderated before it is started, this would only be for new post not replying.

What do you think?
