I am on a gun forum where new members must reply to ten threads before they can post a new thread themselves.
Another forum blocks all new members from posting anything at all, until they post an introduction thread, saying something about their interests, experience, tools, etc., not just "Hi, I'm new here", or jump in with a question or whatever. I think the introductions, at least, must be approved before publishing.
Personally, I'd like to see both introduced here.

Some days, the supply of available curse words is insufficient to meet my demands.
Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.
