My forum is being spamed

Description

One of the forum of the udt project is being spammed. Can you add some feature like CAPTCHA to fence off the spams. Or another less idea solution is to allow all posts to be moderated.

Thank you for this report, I've just banned that user account and removed all his posts I could find. If I missed any, please let me know.

As for captchas, we don't use them because they generally aren't very effective. We are investigating other ways to cut down on this spam however.
