Hi all, Either it's my imagination, or recently (~2 weeks) there seem to be quite a lot more new spam threads from bots and the like. Not sure if anybody else has noticed or if the spammer numbers have stayed largely the same. I imagine to implement a screening process for new threads/members or waiting for approval for first-time posters would take a lot of work and time, so I'm not proposing that's a good idea to fix the problem. It's been so long since I've signed up to MR I can't remember if it requires a valid email address or anything - if not then perhaps it may be something to consider, just to hopefully ease the spammers away. Just wondering what everybody's thoughts are and if anybody has any suggestions, or if I'm probably overreacting. Thanks!
