It's pretty easy to deal with this problem.
On osnn, we simply imposed a post approval policy.
First time users have to be approved before their posts are visible to anyone but the moderators with priveledges.
/me hugs vbulletin.
I am sure mike and the admins on this board can implement a similar policy.
