The only thing that might harm is spammers will be able to post at least once on every subverse they visit with a new account, but it is such a minor issue that this seems like a good idea.

I agree, I am just trying to play Devil's Advocate by thinking about ways it could go wrong.

I can't think of anything really bad, so I just mentioned the "spammers would be able to post at least once on every subverse with a new account" thing.

But it really is possible for them to do that from other subverses.

We have a site-wide ban list for spammers, I believe. There's a box in subverse settings to not use it, but every sub uses it by default.

That is a more recent addition (starting around the time of the ban of Amalek's Dead-_ account), but yeah, that also helps to minimize one of the main criticisms for DerKatalog's idea.

The problem isn't the way Voat works, it is just a problem with shitty mods doing things they shouldn't... fire the mod.

I don't really see a need to preemptively ban spammers. It's more work than just reacting to spam as it hits a sub, and even in default subs the spam problem isn't unreasonable to deal with.
