boss, you cant register a new nick with the same email address. The forum will automatic reject a new nick with the same email address. This is an inbuilt feature of the forum to counter spammer. I also dont see the point of reducing the post count to zero after 500 postings. Whether a person have 10 postings or 10,000 postings, it the quality or the manner it was posted that matter. Posting for the sake of posting does not count much either. (not targeting at any person in particular) As I have mentioned earlier, the classified is an avenue for all to buy/sell. Buyer and Seller are make known of the risk when dealing with each other. The measure taken by the CM is deem as a "knee jerk action" in my opinion.
