No, really. We have a real problem with spammers here, and it's hard to ban them all, since they constantly use new IP addresses and email hosts, even though it's clearly the same algorithm.

The current program attacking us several times a day seems to like posting in the most recently created board. So I figure... why not make a honey trap?

This is a test to see if this approach works at all. Also, at the moment posts here do not raise post count. So in theory, spammers can post here, and then at the end of the day their post count will still be zero, and our anti-spam measure will remove their accounts automagically!

Hello I like your approach. Random text inserted here that won't convince anyone.
