True there is no protection between a 1 poster, 50 poster or 25000 poster but the forums has rules. So yeah if it has to be manually enforced then just bring the ban.

I'm also guessing that this thread is a result of someone ignoring the forum rules and ended up getting scammed and is now in a flurry over not having read the rules.
No, because it is possible.

I’m intimately familiar with the VBulletin back end this very forum uses.

So it’s purely through lack of action or decision.

Manual enforcement is retarded when there are automated tools available. Especially when that manual enforcement is voluntary and not something someone is being paid for.

If it really is about the community then there should be no problem to hide it from new users until they are actually part of said community.
