    maybe to prevent clone accounts from being set up?

    but then again, new members can simply just make quick frivolous comments in various threads or start multiple new threads (best place to buy ***, how much discount for *** etc.) just to make the 10 posts...

    i see it more a deterence.

    How unfortunate, I've been lurking mostly and smsing people direct but now am forced to post.

    I even just surfed the site this morning too, which means the change just came into effect, like just.

    But isn't a forum about sharing? why so much restriction? I can understand the reason of less than 10 post for sale of watch as the new guy may not be reliable and it is to protect fellow forummers but why the restriction to view it. Personally I have brought 1 watch from here and I had less than 10 post count. Both the seller and buyer are happy..

    Is that why someone posted a series of frequently asked questions this morning, to accumulate post count?

    Whatever the reason(s) is/are, I don't think the admin need to tell.

    You have been a member for close to 2 years and you only got 3 post count including this, you are not exchanging.

    As such, you cannot blame administration from imposing 10 post count rule.
