I've been noticing more and more posts recently where the OP is a new member (often only one post) in which they discuess some aspect of their own work or just introduce themselves and then point people directly to a website or blog. The problem is that many of these people never again repost to TPF - they are essentially just using the post to drive traffic to their website. In addition this view is something that I feel is held by many and thus it creates a bad air for a new poster who's intent is not to simply drive up their post count and who (prior to being jumped on about the above) was looking to be a contributing member of the site. Thus would it not be an idea to impose a limit (say 15 posts or something in that region) and maybe a time limit (do pms still have the post count and time limit hack in effect?) before they can post a link in a thread or through their siganture.
