Hi, I think it would be super if there was a feature on ET to restrict a thread to posters registered more then a year or two or any other period. The purpose of this would be to cut down on mindless and useless chatter by many new members. This restriction would be selectable by the person who started the thread if he or she so desires. I realize there are sometimes new members with experience and deep insight. Generally speaking many of them behave like drunken sailors, pissing away their money while making lots of noise just before they disappear from the forums. My main motivation behind this is to hear from members who have the most trading experience which generally speaking is a good predictor of successful methodology in trading. I also realize there are some traders who joined ET recently but have traded for years, nevertheless I still think this restriction would overall benefit ET. As an added benefit members who were banned and reregistered under a different alias would be in the immediate future unable to disrupt the forum.
