What about a system where people can post anything they like, but if that post shows that the user is unfamilliar with airsoft and the rules, etc. Then moderators put that post in the Mudroom, where the user must read the FAQ, even scroll through it, almost like those Microsoft agreements before posting again. Also there could be people designated to answer the questions in the mudroom that have shown they are able to deal with new comers. This way people who join and know what they are talking about can just post away, but those who haven't read the rules and just start asking stupid questions are sent to the mudroom.
