    DIYNOT, why dont you make it so that new members have to make 10 posts before they can post links?

    This is commonplace on other forums to prevent spammers.

    Or do you want another kitchen?

    And there's this whole topic:

    For some unfathomable reason this site doesn't want to do anything to even try and stop spam.

    We're always on the lookout for spam. Actually we stop literally hundreds of posts on a daily basis through various automated preventive measure. Of those posts that do get through are scanned and some flagged for review. There is clearly room for improvement despite of the current measures. Unfortunately preventing links for new posters is not something we can implement in a straight forward manner at this time. I will have some news in the next few weeks that will hopefully improve things on the spam front.
