Just my two cents.

And alex, I totally agree, it's not going to completely stop scammers. People have to rely on their own common sense when doing business on the internet, but I think it would make a pretty good deterrent for the lazier ones.
I absolutely agree. It was not my response, mine was a call to have a minimum post count to weed out those bad elements. I have posted this suggestion more than once.
