Delay before new accounts can post.

I agree in part with noxxi's post. If registration is required for posting, then setting a delay of one day or even a week before new accounts can post would stop most abusive posts. If a user posts abusive messages after the initial delay has passed, simply remove the ability to post from his/her account for ever.
Registration of bogus accounts could be made (slightly) harder by requiring a valid email address. Limit accounts to one per email address and verify the address by sending the account password to it.
