Perhaps the forum configuration could be adjusted to limit a newly-
registered poster to one or two posts, the limitation being removed
by a moderator after observing that the initial post(s) are legitimate.

This would enable a new registrant's initial inquiry to be seen,
and perhaps responded to, without having to wait for a moderator to
approve it, while preventing the all-too-common situation in which
a newly-registered spammer is able to send out a dozen spam posts
before being banned.
