Thus you have the dialectic of contradiction to handle:

You don't want to give this place a "squatter's rights" attitude and you express that admirably in the idea that a new member could judge as well as an old timer.
On the other hand, you don't want the ability to create an account quickly just to enable being an anonymous a**hole totally easy.

For a member "with a history, longevity, &etc", you at least know who they are and can take whatever measures you deem appropriate.

But the contradiction exists: surreptitious creation of accounts for minor harassment vs being a welcoming place. How does the drive-by user differ morally from a spammer? One spammer apparently hit one of my posts, today, and it was purged before I could get there to mark it as spam.

Your choice of colors is a difficult gradient that will just have to pick where to succeed and where to fail. Almost a living thing.
