IBM, can't someone do something here.. this really ruins this environment. 9 new garbage topics since thursday. someone has to take active control here.

1. 1 bad post, their userid gets disabled.
2. implement a new automation registration check
3. implement some random delay from new registration to 1st post

We're actively moderating the forums, deleting spam posts, and disabling the user accounts. Each sub-forum has a few moderators listed, and you can ping one of them if you notice more spam. Our site administrators are also monitoring each day. Unfortunately, the way these people work, there is not much we can do to block their activity before it happens, other than demonstrate that it is not worth their time on
