Well, to be honest, I appreciate this "security feature". I used to be a member with another forum and my message box there was flooded by spam until a feature like this was implemented. Although that was a little extreme, your first 10 posts had to be reviewed and approved by a mod before it even appeared on the forums - just to verify that it is an intelligent post that contributes to the discussion. Although, it worked like regular forums after you got past the initial 10 mod approved post requirement. It is just for the protection of the legit members and to preserve the integrity of the member count.
