One answer to that is to have an age-of-account limit for certain types of posts, or posts in particular discussions.

Like a Wikipedia article becoming semi-protected, restricting edits to those who have full accounts, and not just anonymous (IP) edits.
Or select subreddits on Reddit not allowing posts, OR replies, from accounts that have some combination of being too young and having too low a karma score, (sometimes further divided into too low a comment karma or too low a new post karma).

There are ways around these as well, of course, but they require more work, and the cost of losing an account to a moderator ban becomes more expensive.
