2FA for posting threads

On the grounds of security, we think that having a 2FA requirement to post a thread to become an optional feature.
Example: To post a thread, you'll need to confirm a code sent to your phone. It would help out a lot if an account was compromised.

It's not a good idea, maybe everyone stays away from this forum...

Could be an opt in thing, through a third party auth service like google authenticator, Authy, Aegis. Dosnt need to be SMS, RF wont have to know your #.
the only potential problem i really see is the service blocking RF.

I meant it as just through google auth etc. No phone number needed.

There is already 2FA for login measure.
I think that would be a pain to use it also when posting a thread...also active people like you ATW would need it like 15 times per day Wink
Use strong passwords, 2FA, avoid simswappers.
