No, absolutely not. I hate trolls and spamming as much as the next guy but no. I'm opposed to anymore Draconian rules, like for example needing more than 100 karma or so to post a pic or so on so forth. Loosen up a bit. I mean I've always felt right at home here, and I think having this discussion is making people uncomfortable to come here, to feel at home. If they have to post a link, yes let them, but we have people to check if it's legit. I'm sure you wouldn't like it if you made an account now and couldn't post a link to answer a person's question.
That's my rant of the day.
