This is a feature that was developed for mahara.org to reduce spam content on the page. We had a great deal of spam content created on the site, presumably with the goal of being cross-linked for search engine optimization purposes. In order to combat this, we implement a new user probation system, in which newly self-registered accounts cannot create publicly visible content containing links, thus making the site useless for SEO purposes.
