    Right now, you don't have to have over 50 posts to just annoy the mods.

    Just an idea.
    Why would anyone want to intentionally annoy the mods?

    They have banhammers!

    Only posts made in the Support Forums count. Any posts made in such Forums as the Community Cafe do not add to your Bean count.

    I am very surprised to read that it happened.
    EDIT: Now I find that to be very amusing.

    Have you also come across spammers reporting posts and filling the reports with spam?

    Are we to understand there has been a measure of abuse relating to Avatars?
    It seems a tad strange that removal of "Avatar rights" should be referenced, by the OP, in the context of SPAM.
    Perhaps there is another reason?

    It's the ability to customise your profile that is disabled, which includes having an avatar.
