I remember when this site got hacked and all sorts of odd messages started popping up, so I do understand that posts from new members need to be monitored. My question is for how long? What is the magic number of posts needed? I joined last summer, not sure how many posts I have made but I have 47 credits. The problem is that by the time a comment is posted, the statement may be irrelevant to current discussion or it gets buried deep in the thread or the thread has already died out. This makes it pretty hard for new members to take part in conversations.
