Description

There is an increasing amount of annoying spam posts.

It would be nice for at least the redmine.org site to support Mollom, Akismet, ReCaptcha, etc.

There is a ruby class at http://mollom.rubyforge.org/

It's true. There are forum threads where the last N messager are spam (ex: http://www.redmine.org/boards/2/topics/3399). If not a captcha, I think external links should be at least tagged with nofollow.

I totally agree. I had to lock registration for my Redmine site because the spam was getting too high.

I think this is a super-high priority for 0.9 or 0.9.1.

I'll +1 this only because people make fun of my current solution.

Something like this would be really nice. I've had Redmine installed now for under 24 hours and I've already had two spam registrations.

As a work around, I have added a required field to registration that can only have one set answer. This seems to have stopped the spam sign-ups for now.

How do you test for the answer? This might be a simple solution for the moment, until the redmine team gets some proper anti-spam measures implemented.
