@Maoky, your account is now have fun on the forum. Sorry for the mild delay things are a bit nuts with me moving house.
ggf, Myself and the moderation staff have been very aware of the spam. The fact that there has been a delay finding a solution has not been about taking anyone's suggestion seriously or not seriously, it's just about finding a way that is not intrusive to members, after all we've equally seen how much of a pest stopbot systems and especially captchas can be.
Even this solution isn't ideal, since currently only administrators, i.e. Sander, Richard or myself have the ability to remove the restricted status from accounts, though hopefully that is something which will change in the near future.
As to any spam kicking around the forum, as is usual, if you think we've missed anything, feel free to put in a report.
With our dreaming and singing, Ceaseless and sorrowless we! The glory about us clinging Of the glorious futures we see,
Our souls with high music ringing; O men! It must ever be
That we dwell in our dreaming and singing, A little apart from ye. (Arthur O'Shaughnessy 1873.)
