Korean Trolls Get A Ten Post Limit

from the choose-your-trolling-carefully dept

As any "open forum" provider learns soon enough (assuming it has some amount of traffic), spam and trolls come as part of the bargain. Over the years, different providers have taken different strategies to deal with them, but the popular Korean portal Naver is trying something new: you only get to post 10 times a day -- which could certainly cut some flame wars short. Of course, this still seems like the type of thing that the really persistent spammer and troll would be able to get around, just by setting up multiple user accounts (or even figuring out ways to share "leftover" posting inventory from others who aren't using up their limit).
