We get like one legitimate new user every six months or so. Everyone else comes in here to spam. I think at least 75% of new posts on the forum are spam.

Would that actually stop the spammers though? Feel that would harm the genuine new users more. I recall something broke with the site, so Ellie turned that off to fix an issue... but that opened the floodgates to the spammers. Think it was the email verification or something.

You can require approval of the first n posts. You still have to deal with the spammers, but the general membership never sees them.
