In case anyone's missed "the Dieting[^]™", I've just discovered a huge amount of spam hidden in the personal forums of various spam-bots. (I suspect I've only scratched the surface, and there's a lot more to be found.)

Since these bots have never posted in any other forum on the site, only the search-engines will ever see it. As a result, some of it has survived for several years.

I think it might help to restrict the use of the personal forum to members who have:
  • posted in at least one other "public" forum on the site, or in QA;
  • earned a minimum reputation "score"; and
  • been a member for more than a month;


It won't be foolproof, but it would probably have stopped most of the spam I've just found.
