Can we use something similar to force users introducing themselves only as their first THREAD (and not post)?

I think this way we can also fight spam bots, and at the same time we'll not prevent users from posting in any threads, as they'll not be required to introduce themselves to POST, but just to START THEIR FIRST THREAD.

Thanks for this add-on though, @AndyB

One problem found, If a new member report any post before create first post in introduction, then this restriction will not works, and report will count as his first post.
