Within 48 of making the switch to WP, someone registered a new account and sent me an email asking for posting privelleges. I checked out her web site, (I think it's a her) and gave the account posting privelleges.
Now that I think about it, I'll probably approve just about anyone who asks to join the team. But if do that, why not give new users posting privilleges by default? I suppose requiring new users to send a brief email discourages those who only desire to cause damage.
So for those who have groupblogs, how do you deal with new users?
It would be really nice if there was a system that required low level users to have their postings approved before they are published, but I haven't been able to find a plugin that would do this. In fact, it seems that only CMS tools like Scoop and PHPnuke allow this kind of functionality, which would be overkill for my site.
