Not to be rude, but...

There is a topic at the VERY TOP of this forum that has the title:

This MOD will do it: Anti-Spam: Only Active Members Can Post URLs

Now, as we do not wish to have multiple anti SPAM topics, I'm closing this one. Continue in the "Preventing SPAM" topic if you have more questions.
