Our apologies to all of our unregistered MobileRead visitors who enjoy participating in our discussions in the general chat forum. For the time being, we have been forced to disable posting unless you are registered because we are being overrun by spam. One bad apple can cause all of us some slight inconveniences. We ask you to understand that this was not our desire, but it was forced upon us, at least for the moment. In the meantime, please consider registering and participating in the discussions! It just takes a moment, and is very simple and non-intrusive. Thank you for your patience!
Down with spam and I agree...

To those who still post Unregistered... Just take the five minutes to get registered, and then you're allowed to post anywhere. And people will be able to recognize you easier, since you'll not just be another semi-random Guest. ;)

I hate those Spammers who ruins many a boards. Doesn't they got a better way to spend their time than putting put post like 'first post' or link to porn sites? Those people should either get a life or get in jail (for those advertising porn)...

Unfortunately, spam is a constant issue we're going to have to deal with. I think the distorted image for verification is the way to go, if it can be implemented without too much trouble.

Good idea. We do have CAPTCHA already in place for new member registration, but adding CAPTCHA for anonymous postings might do the trick as well.
