There is no ultimate technological answer to spam, as it is a matter of people outsmarting each other. One side changes and the other adapts in a perpetuating cycle.

The key to eliminating spam is to remove the spammer's motivation. We need a way to remove spam's intrinsic profitability.

I think some kind of spam protection is getting to be necessary. Captcha is good stuff.

I thought the upgraded included a default capcha, but there doesn't seem to be an option for it. but I found a how-to with a custom capcha that i'm working on as we speak.
