I, for one, welcome the new rule.
However my sockpuppets are sounding like the ones from Willie Wallie, only more disappointed. "oh no, oh NO, OH NO!"
Sent form my PC using my keyboard with a little help from my mouse.
Just wrap my head in tinfoil and point me towards the bar.
I think it's an excellent idea.
I know it has been suggested many times before for PD & classifieds: Instead of a you don't have permission to enter/post either also write the requirements or create a locked thread & also link that there so the people can read the requirements.
& for those whining about where to post then:
Health & ...
Off Topic threads
(there's your cheese)
Sigh, rule doesn't just punishes trolls, it punishes others who don't meet the criteria, who no have to wait out the remainder of their 3 months (Person in question has more than 50 posts already, most of them in this section).
My heart pumps lumpy custard for these others you mention who are physically tortured and tormented with their human rights and dignity being violated by the measures to keep trolls out
Let's be honest here, you don't want trolls, if there were better ways of keeping them out you would do it. Those who aren't trolls must now wait because of the actions of trolls and others. In the meantime good contributions are not made as well as some bad being kept out.
It's a 2 way street. What about those that really want access early applying for it specifically and we give the mods complete discretion who gets a "special" allowance or not?
In that way people who have made some good posts but perhaps not been here for 3 months can continue to contribute as they are certainly not trolling, or people who have been here longer but made less posts (And not trolled) also don't have to wait.
In summary: If our aim is to keep out trolls, why not give the non-trolls access? Seems logical to me.

That said, part of being an adult, is having a measure of patience and restraint. If someone has three months to live and they have to post their CA opinions now before it is too late, I'm sure rpm would make an exception for that one person to post in CA. For everyone else that registers, use your three months to post in the many other addictive forums and become an integral part of this community before you enter into the hell that CA has been until a few days ago.

I must concede that, this rule has been exceptionally effective... can't remember when last I saw a barney on this forum or a major disruption.
Hey. I just noticed that "Who will you be voting for?" thread was deleted. Is such a thread against the rules?
