    Is there any way to prevent someone posting in Buy/Tade/Sell based on having less than the required posts, or on length of membership?

    That would be Rammstien.

    But posting spam is a violation of that forum's posting rule so they get banned when they do it.

    :banned:

    I believe AV8R is asking if the board software can be configured to handle it automatically.

    I could with posts, but the spammers will just post in other forums. It just so happens that it was the buy/sell/trade forum the most recent time. However most of the time they just post anywhere.

    I have now started banning the ip address of the poster. If it keeps happening, I will start contacting their Host and reporting them.

    If the spammer is in the US, they can get into legal trouble. If it is overseas, I will just block their host's entire range of ip addresses.
