Limit social channels

We have "linkback" spammers that register an account, put their web site address in the social channels, and leave.   Does anyone else here see that in your community?  What options are there to stop it?    I can switch user, delete the info, switch back, then ban them, but I'd like to make it so 1st time login people can't add that stuff in their profile.  

I've created a "newbie" role for users with 1 login and want to restrict their ability to add that information in their profile.  I can't see any options to do so.    Any suggestions?   Thanks in adavance.

You can log ticket to support or PS service for this kind of issue you are facing, and they can disable or hide those fields from user profile for newbie roles.

FYI support came back and said that would have to be a customization to hide those fields from certain roles.  Smiley Sad
