I want to be a new stackoverflow user and my first question was a question dealing with logging in to stackoverflow with OpenId. OpenId is based on hyperlinks, so in order to ask a question, I had to include more than 1 hyperlink. When I posted, "karma" kicked in and told me I couldn't use more than 1 hyperlink.
To get around the problem, I just put a space in the protocol part of the url (eg, ht tp://example.com) to break the links, but it also makes the technical details incorrect. It's minor, but in a small way ruins the integrity of the question.
A better solution would be to make the links not clickable in the question until the user gets enough Karma.
The original question I had that karma kicked in on was: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2347896/is-it-possible-to-logon-to-stackoverflow-using-a-google-apps-account
LOL, and "karma" kicked in for this question too, saying new users can only post question every 20 minutes; try again later. I guess I can wait, but isn't 20 minutes exessive? And wouldn't a CAPTCHA be more fitting?
