Forum spam?

Your forums aren't going to be very helpful unless you fix the increasing problem of spam.

How about having a new forum for unlicensed users, with all the existing forums being writable only by users from licensed organisations?

Hi Simon,

Already fixed. I've been a bit more relaxed recently about approving user accounts that don't use real names, or at least names that look like real names, and this has been the result. Unregistered users aren't allowed in at all, never have been. 8)
