Lately, I noticed alot of spam postings. I'm sure the moderators have their hands full especially
during this holiday season.

How about requiring a ("linux, math, what) " question everytime you want to post?

E.g.
sin 0 = a:0 b: 1 c:1/2
what is the oldest distribution? a: ubuntu b: debian c: slackware
....

I'm sure people can think of others.

Spammers are known to hired cheap laborers to "solve" captcha test. Make the questions
so that only posters can answer. Most posters know something about linux, computer, math,
technolgy, etc. I'm aware of one statistic forum that has a statistic question as a requirement
to post.
