    Ok seriously it’s getting really ridiculous the amount of spam on the forums is getting to an increasingly annoying level.

    There more of them but this one is most badly behaved.

    Authenticated signup is the only way to go – maybe with a captcha in the process too. It is ridiculous.

    I try to get on it every day or two, sorry about that. The signup form DOES have a captcha, it’s amazing how persistent they are. I’ll look into those ideas to block more of it, but last time I tried any deep alterations to the code of these forums I really borked it =P, makes me nervous.
