XF 1.2 Options: Spam Management: Maximum Messages to Check for Spam

For whatever reason, I'm having a hard time trying to understand this option:

Maximum Messages to Check for Spam
Users will only have their messages checked as spam until they have successfully posted this many messages. Use 0 to disable all spam checks.

Option set at '5'. Does this mean if user posted 5 times (the default xF value), user will be exempt from the SPAM cleaner?

Not exempt from the spam cleaner - there are separate thresholds where that can be used. But as @Brogan says, their messages will no longer be individually checked for spam-specific behaviors.
