IIUC, you propose that there is a special way for non-subscribers to
post, that locks out spammers at the same time? How should that work?
The only thing I could imagine, is one of those silly 'type the letters
that you find in this image' stuff.
That simply drives spammers to OCR or other tricks and locks out others
(blind, color blind etc.), and adds an additional layer of annoyance to
the rest of us.
[I get angry against spammers, but I would rather rely on my spam filter
and ignore the odd spam that gets through than to make it more difficult
for people to post. ]
