The cob webs, in this forum, seem to only collect SPAM!! I wonder if it is, Freedom SPAM! SPAM! SPAM! SPAM!
I have a feeling this is going to be an ongoing struggle. I've just spent the morning clearing it out, and removing the bot users. But I have a feeling the best defense against noise is signal. Right now there's not a lot of traffic in the forum. When there is more traffic the occasional SPAM will seem irrelevant. It's a ratio problem. My goal is too keep it below the Facebook unsolicited advertisement ratio.
Marc Stevens handles it by having everyone email him to request a user name for access before they can post.
I get your point, but he doesn't vet people he simply uses that as a tool to prevent bots. It seems to work although perhaps some will self sensor by not choosing to send an email request for access.
