I totally understand preventing new fake users signing up and spamming the board with advertising links and such.

It is puzzling and also frustrating why users with hundreds, some with thousands, of posts would need to be be similarly restricted.

If they had been causing a problem, they would have been discovered years ago.

The disabling of the "link" button is similarly problematic (for longtime users).

It's seems like the moderators are so power hungry. That they want to moderate everything. Like they enjoy the power trip of moderating members posts. 

The solution as already mentioned is simple. Just manually aporove all new members and keep it as it was before. It's easy to spot the fake automated members. 

On second thoughts. Members should not post links. That way the topic won't need moderating for every post.

I don't agree with this. Sometimes you need to post a link to Gurbani or a Gurbani resource.

Or a YouTube link.

And sometimes, when debating, people challenge other people to post a reference.

So how would banning links work? You can post the most outrageous assertions, but when someone challenges you, you simply say "I'd post the proof, but links are banned"?

Frustrating.

We don’t have option where system allows new members or member with few posts to be manually moderated. We have rare case where wrong links were posted after they bypass or somehow got approved by admin as member. 

Will try to see if YouTube links can be excluded from moderation. It is no fun for moderators to see huge list or topics and posts waiting for pending approval.

if nothing works then will get rid of this rule from admin.
