Additional moderators will help at least to remove such spam quickly. For example, in more than half of cases of spam messages like this I would be able to remove them very quickly (in fact, as soon as I get them into my inbox which is checked for new mail automatically every few minutes) if I have enough rights to do so... But I havn't and they can exist for hours.

Even after additional protection from spam robots will be added to the forum, there will be some probability of spam messages anyway, and group of moderators can handle such cases very quickly (especially if there is 2-3 people in this group or more).

If you need some people to help with that just say a word. Even if the
helpers are only able to disable (that the person couldn't add more
stuff and that the comment by this person isn't shown anymore) such
stuff so that the real admin can delete it if he is online.

This might not be a good permanent fix idea. But what if you made the first folder on WineHQ into a "Honey pot SPAM" folder it seems like all the spam only go to the first folder. The second "Suggestions box" folder has been saved from spam so far maybe not for long.

That way everybody in the short term will know that only spam is posted on the very first folder in the phpBB hierarchy.

They won't help the mailing list. I suggest holding message board
posts from new posters until they can be verified as non-spam.

But until a good fix is found, please unlink the list from the forum.

Cheers,

That's the right approach. And what a pain it is.

Better to just disable the forum until we have better
automated user filtering and spam filtering.

The list runs on Mailman - it's easy to set all new posters default
moderated. Slight nuisance for the moderator, and I'm not sure how
that would interact with the forum gateway - is the forum gateway
something built into phpBB, or a hand-crufted lash-up?
