i have seen some 1st posts which are way better than any of our posts..for example lets look at the never stop believe thread..if there was a restriction sidratt vai wouldn't have been able to open that thread...yes some new members threads are not that good but that doesnt mean everybody's will be..and having a post count of 200+ also doesn't mean that threads will be good..
if there is a garbage thread there are mods..and i'll say most mods here are more than capable of handle this kind of threads..so there is no need to take out the independence of opening a thread from a member just because he or she is new..
