How about we turn the process around and try the mechanics: if a member with more than 25/50 posts whatever; pushes the agony button on a post from someone with less than 10 posts; the post disappears until mod clears it?

Unfortunately, KC, I don't think we have that much control over how the Forum works.   If anyone reports a SPAM or otherwise unpleasant message, both member and message are deleted PDQ, either by myself or one of the Moderators.   

I have in fact deleted nearly 350 very doubtful members since July - 185 in December alone!   I really don't know why these people bother - most of them don't post messages or even come back once they've registered.   But I'm getting very good at spotting 'em ;)

And the 'warn a mod' system works, almost every time I get such a warning one of the others have been there and deleted the post before I came.
