This way you prevent any spammer/ possible hacker to open doors in vb.
Is highly unprobable a hacker will have time to post 10 messages you will not delete so he can hack you.

Tagged for now as I am still setting up my forum
If you have yet to setup your forum you can set it up like that without this mod... just make registered users a limited permissions group and promote everyone to a new group after 10 posts.
