btw, spambot "080522jk" did also register at http://www.ubuntuforums.org about noon CET and started spamming there... I noticed it and told then one of the mods in the UF irc channel...

Most effective solution would probably be some kind of captcha upon each post.... but that will upset other users.....

If I want to contribute something I normally hit quick reply and post ist... I normally don't wanna be bothered iwth some verifciation...

Maybe an option would be to play with the groups. New signed up people in the "default" member group will have to captcha verify.... older/trusted users are in a different group without limitation... an in order for being swapped from the "new default user groups" to the "trusted one" it will first require mod/admin review wehther the posts made so far are spam or not...
