Should we have a spam thread notification system so that if someone spots one they can email you or something so you can delete it?

As you can't possibly read every single thread John so are likely to miss them.

Nope. But the buggers've been cropping up with alarming regularity over the last few days (either that or it happens all the time and I just happen not to have noticed before).

its already too late, the only way to stop them is surely to suspend all guest posting.

That's what I thought yesterday. But the last few have been started by robots which have actually managed to register as users, so that wouldn't necessarily work, would it?

What about that dealio with typing a distorted string of text? Wouldn't that be better than having to authorise signups?

It would be easier to ignore them if they didn't have the potential to be so damn funny.  Pet Food?  Come on!

It got deleted.  I think it was in the Hellblazer section.
