Spam Posts

The forum is receiving a steady stream of spam posts. Some forums require moderator approval of the first post by a new member.

A question to the moderators:
Would requiring moderator approval be doable from a technical perspective and also in view of the moderators' workload managing this forum?

It is doable technically. It cannot be more work than the spam is causing now. It is done. :-)

Thanks for the idea!

Hi everyone!

Our apologies for the multiple spam messages that have come through the B-Hebrew forum over the last week or so. As mentioned previously, we expected there would be teething problems with the new forum, and this is one of them. Nonetheless, we're working to get things under control and eliminate the spam. We appreciate your patience.
