I think this "junior member" nonsense should be scrapped. Automatic full posting rights = a more active forum. Some people simply do not have the time to make hundreds of posts, it's daunting for newcomers and I imagine it is very off-putting. I know I wouldn't stick around if I were to join today. And in the unlikely event that a spammer slips through the net, well, it's not like we're thin on moderators. Let's turn this cold, uninviting forum back in to warm and welcoming place it used to be.
