A number of people have reported this issue.
In recent past a number of forum members went on a crazy spam posting frenzy all at the same time. We were getting 10 or more ad threads in each forum. Another person was making posts with a picture of a male sexual organ in their signature.
Turbine made changes to the posting rights to put a stop to this behavior. I am do not know what all the restrictions are. I suspect one of them is that you have to post in one of the few forums that are open to you. Wait out the timer to get access to the other forums.
If you want to discuss the issue further you need to send a private message for a community representative like Sapience.
Accounts like yours were the primary cause of all the disruption. People would create a new account that would have a creation of Feb, 2014. Go on a rampage. There is still one human that posts several ads every weekend on the few forums that the the user has access to. It is always ads for the same service.
It is an unfortunate situation. A few jerks were abusing their posting rights as new arrivals. Turbine's response is to restrict all new users.
