I'll discuss it with the team.
I've also been thinking about trying to divide up the hardware interfacing forum into multiple categories, so it could be nice to have some extra moderators to help out in categorizing the posts.
OTOH, I don't think there's so much spam to really interfere with the forum usage, although I understand that it's annoying.
I would also like to see the spam problem improved.
what about to use a captcha system for the borad? http://www.yabbforum.com/community/YaBB.pl?num=1186785854/0
I don't see it as a huge problem...
it's not that we have a 90% spam 10% content ration..
To be honest I don't understand the reluctance to enable a couple of people to implement this. Is there something about the situation I'm not understanding?

The attacks Arduino.cc's has been suffering, are Bot attacks, and bots "cannot" navigate sites protected by "good" implementations of CAPTCHAs, such as the format used over at Yahoo.
QuoteThe attacks Arduino.cc's has been suffering, are Bot attacks, and bots "cannot" navigate sites protected by "good" implementations of CAPTCHAs, such as the format used over at Yahoo.It's trivial to break any captcha. You simply link it into a "free porn" site and have users answer the captchas. They type the captcha, the bot automatically enters it into the victim site, and if it's right, the script lets the viewer have their porn. There is no such thing as a good implementation because any captcha can be defeated with this sort of attack.
