Forum spam

Anse, I think you'll have implement moderation in your homebrew forum software sooner or later, at least for newly created accounts. I follow the forum via RSS and it's not nice to see all that junk coming.

Maybe implement Google's CAPTCHA test? I'm referring to that "I'm not a robot" checkbox component that they provide.

At least it's flattering that some hacker wrote some code targeting your own forum's forms.
