    Why can I post on any forum except the politics forum? Are my views that offensive :D

    You need to have 100+ posts I believe, or be a "MacRumors regular".

    Just don't go spamming to get to 100 posts. ;)

    Feel free to post a ton of stuff if you actually have something to say, or can help people. But until then best to stay out of the Poli Forums so your blood doesn't boil and you can't respond. I look forward to seeing you there.

    Yes spam will get you banned, then you never reach 100 posts. ;)

    It's a really good idea and works for both MacRumors and the forum users as:

    1) It stops spammers and flamers
    2) Users know by 100 posts what the other people are like on this forum, thus allowing them to form an opinion on what they have to say in such virile politics and religion forums ;)

    Plus, come on ;) I like being this side of the fence :p and being able to post and you lot can't... neh neh ne neh ne. ;)

    Great, then you can rack up a 100 posts and start annoying us in the Politics forum. ;)

    BTW, the 100 post minimum was a great solution. Lowered the temperature over there to something under 500° Kelvin.
