It's about time that the owner and/or moderators institute a restriction on newbies from posting new and repeated threads and posts on this board. This does not help with your traffic as it just ends up getting deleted. It makes the job of the (non-paid, volunteer) moderators that much harder and will only chase away the same people you would hope to maintain order and decorum on this site. Advertisers won't pay for space on some pissy, little site when they can spend wiser some place else. The recent rash of Cybil sock-puppets spouting the same mantra should be evidence that this is getting out of hand and needs to be addressed. While this is your site, Baron, you did name it Elite for a reason, but of late, the noise from the site is more akin to crap. Reading thru the threads going back a bit, there have definitely been some great contributing members who have basically just said f*ck it and left, which is a shame because they could add some great benefit to those who would seek their advice (take lescor's recent trading thread from Jan 2010). Putting the proper restrictions in place are not that difficult for the software you use for the site and would greatly improve the noise and if that improved, might bring in some more of those advertisers to fill the vacant 13 different thread categories that currently do not have any sponsors.
