The Five Post Minimum

I believe it’s pretty obvious as to why this site has requirements for creating a topic in, say, the Help section, but there’s going to be people who come here looking for support, see they have to post 5 times, and basically just fill the forums with 5 posts of useless responses so they can be able to post. I’m not sure if that’s really the right route, but I suppose if it’s not a problem then there’s no point in fixing what isn’t broken.
