RTI, please get your forums in order

Seriously, RTI.  You need to deal with the spam.  I'm sick of getting blocks of 20 Korean spam emails in my subscriptions.  Deleting the threads retroactively from the forum isn't enough.

Hello Jason,

I am really sorry for the inconvenience. Unfortunately this morning we had around 20 or 30 spam posts that our antispam mechanisms did not catch. It looks like other Drupal websites, including Drupal.org, have been affected by the same pattern.

When these attacks occurred, we were using four different antispam mechanisms on this website. After yesterday's incident we added a fifth mechanism that we hope will help mitigate this kind of spam as well. If you are interested in the antispam measures we implement, we can definitely share the information with you via private message.

Best regards,
