    Seams madness that people can just create accounts and post any old rubbish, if a member has been on here for x amounts of posts or time then there is less chance of being ripped off by users only posting to sell things.

    I thought there was a 10 post minimum... doesn't stop all spam though, people just post random rubbish to reach the post count and then spam the classifieds. I guess it stops bots, but there are plenty of other ways of doing that.
