    Hmm. How 'bout that each new signup has to get its first 10 posts approved by a moderator? Should be fairly easy to weed out spambots that way, as most people won't go into the hassle of making 10 posts and then spamming everything.
    On the other hand it might scare off new blood... hmm...

    I feel this could turn into a cat and mouse game, but what about blocking certain words in the thread title, like 'episode'? I thought 'season' would be a good candidate for that too, but there are legitimate threads with that (social tournmanents, mostly).

    What about blocking for words like "http"/"www"/".com" in posts/signatures until you've hit 10 posts? Not much point in spamming if you can't include links.
    Free speech don't mean unchallengeable speech.

    That's a good solution, right? Disable linking until threshold met?

    But then you're putting off new posters, that wish to post a link. There are a number of independent developers, or mod developers, that start topics (as their first) to bring attention to their games. No links in those posts wouldn't be very good.

    Again, I don't think anything should be done to inconvenience legitimate posters/new members.

    I don't know, asking Mr. Rossignol to change his name seems a bit overboard.

    Maybe just adding an umlaut?

    Maybe they should ask his middle name.

    To be honest I have been going with my handle rather than my real name all my life. That is my actual middle name for whoever talks about me.

    Then by the CoL criteria, I give you a weighted aggregate score of 14.2.

    I and my friends will now vote a score of 1 just to bring it down because I hear that there's a Signup Name DLC coming out and I don't like it.

    I didn't even tell you what the upper limit is!

    However, I heard that for the low, low price of 250 RPS-bucks*, you can reserve your name for when the forums roll over next month.

    *purchasable in batches of 400

    Now that’s what I call crowd-sourcing. Well done, forum. We promise to find a way to deal with the spam in thanks.

    Any detectives figuring out the problem should look at this:

    I'm pretty sure the thread was about 4 hours old when I took the shot.

    Doesn't seem like a one or even two post requirement would work.
