Ok I'm not one who usually complains, but I'm personally getting tired of the obnoxious threads a lot of the new members are starting in the Main forum. I can understand when a new member posts something that's been mentioned a million times, mostly because they're new and probably don't understand the search feature.

What bugs me are the ones who come in and start up to 10 stupid and clueless threads (in 1 day) that lack basic common sense. "Trade our 1st for McNair!" "We should have drafted Clarett with our 1st!" or some nonsense like that. This is why we should have a Dolphins IQ test during the sign up process. Maybe 10-20 questions about the Phins, so that way we can weed out the people who just come on here to post stupid things.

I know I know, something like this will never fly...and yes I know a message board is a place for someone to share their opinions...but some opinions are just downright idiotic. :D ;)

P.S. what's up with some people posting under different aliases? *cough Hulkster,Macho Man,Yoda, Mr. T cough*

In my humble opinion I think new members should have to have a minimum of 500 posts before they can start a thread...

The I.Q. test is a good idea as well. You get one crack (track the I.P. so they can't comeback and do it over and over again), with a time limit so there is no Googling. If they flunk they can come back in 2 weeks and try again. Have 4-5 versions of the test so they get something different every time...

This might weed out the Bill fans to...:tongue:
