    I've seen a fair amount of replies from scammers in my WTB/WTS ads. All of them had post counts of 0. They follow a common template, e.g.:

    Midyete1299 Sent 5 hours, 53 minutes ago

    Contact Jack in Arizona he has 600mm FX Impact Barrel Kit .30cal for sell [email protected]

    Requiring >=10 posts could mitigate this type of spam.

    New here to AG Nation.  I can see having a post quantity before posting or replying to adds in the classifieds is extremely helpful.  Not sure how many I will need to post before I can start buying things I shouldn't!  :)

    No one can reply directly to ads, you have to PM the person from their profile.

    What do the letters "PM" mean and I thought once you have 10 posts you can reply to or make a classified ad?  I think I have 3 posts at this time.  Does a newbies first introduction post count as your first post?
