It seems UR is starting to get its share of spammers that try to sell clintz/cards for real money. Real or fraudelent, but they should be gotten rid of.
How they work: They create new accounts and start spamming their advertisements immediately, to forums, to private messages etc.
Why it works? - Because the work from signup to be able to spam is really low.
How to fix this?
1) Disallow public/private messages and comments to anybody except friends until player has played 50 fights that did not end up in timeout.
2) Disallow friend requests from anybody who has less than 50 fights (but they can be still asked to be friends. it has to be initiated by someone else.)
2) Give boot to all the illegit advertisers IMMEDIATELY and without questions after verifying proof.
This way work to be able to spam becomes really hard (you pay in time to fight 50 fights) to be able to get 1 shot in spamming. That is counter-productive. Legit players get 50 fights quickly, so they really wont suffer at all. Its all about being able to stop repeated activity.
