Rep Requirement for News Posts.

479 27
Dear OCN Moderators,
I have seen an increase in spam in the news section, so I think a rep requirement of 35 (the same as selling something) and a post requirement would be nice to prevent this from happening. Maybe a little lower, but just something to keep this from happening, I like looking for real news, and these spammers are hurting this site and I think it's an easy fix. Please do something about it.

I agree something needs to be done, I disagree with 35.

Honestly, we need a 1-rep requirement, just to stop people from making an account to post about how to Rip and convert a DVD every day.

This isn't for whether or not people deserve rep, its about trying to find a solution to cut down on spam.
