I have also commented on this here:

I don't know if it's possible yet, but can we somehow disallow people post on specific categories/topics unless they have a specific amount of posts already ?
@gaasg This will be good thing. On this way users can be guided trough some kind of funnel and in that way it can be reduced number of spam by alot.
For example to have introduce topic where u people will introduce and be manually or automaticaly approvde.
It will be soon, it's part of something bigger that I've been working on
@psychobunny Hahaha I was just about to reply any say it'd be neat if you could limit posting to certain categories to users with a specific badge...
... but it seems you may have beaten me to it.
Limiting posts to people with certain badges is one thing, but groups and their permissions is definitely something that needs to be flushed out a bit more in the future.
