I sympathize with the impulse, but that would awfully hard on lurkers with a specific, legitimate question. We get a lot of guys who join the week before their wedding in a panic, for instance, who want real help. They start a thread, make maybe five posts, get what they need and never come back. Do we want to prevent that?
