hi webmaster(s)/admin(s),

since we've been seeing several spam posts lately, and most of these seem to come from users with just 1 post (or sometimes a small number of posts, usually < 10), is it possible to require entering a "captcha" for posting on forums? This could be enforced either for 1st post or first N posts (eg 10) to avoid burdening everyone with this process, while at the same time hopefully eliminating spam?

I'm not sure if this has been discussed before and/or there are any plans in place to counter spam from these forums - just thought i'd share this in case implementing a "captcha" system is feasible.

thanks and keep up the excellent work!
