    So the spammers have finally caught up and found these forums, flooding them with continuous dribble.

    We have two options that I can think of:

    1) Just keep on top of it deleting spam as it pops up. It's what we've been doing so far, but we'll have to see if this is a permanent new addition or just a temporary thing.

    2) Disable anonymous postings, requiring everyone to have and use a sourceforge login. It's free and easy of course, but it's perhaps a minor barrier that irritates some.

    Option 2 is what SourceForge prefer us to do. Any comments or suggestions most welcome.
