#5173: User Diary Spam

 Would it be possible to implement a restriction that requires user
 accounts to fulfill one of these in order to make a diary post or for it
 to be published:

 - Have a certain amount of edits
 - Have a certain age (maybe a week)
 - First post requires moderator approval (basically unlocking the diary)
 I think the blog is a great marketing tool to expand the community, but
 this spam which also ends up in the feeds (which I think are important)
 and then for example on Twitter really hurts those efforts.
