reCaptcha has been replaced with questions. You cannot simply replace a service like akismet. I will consider turning akismet off again if someone comes up with a better solution.

I understand that akismet filtering is used for the few first postings of a new account, right?
Do you have any data how much spam does it catch, as some stuff still gets through the filtering as spammy first posts?

Would it be possible to block creation of threads with the word review in the first post.

It should block creation of threads with links in it now. So not even moderation, just prevent posting at all. If the moderation part is tuned too much I get like everything posted to queue. It is like 1 out of 5 is actually spam. So I turned it off.

It doesn't block spam.

They pass yahoo, wordpress, google and microsoft, don't you think they manage to pass our measures just as well?! Akismet is wordpress btw, so if they pass wordpress and google they pass everything else just as likely. And there is probably a bug in the link detection of akismet or the forums bbcode parsing, as both are set to prevent posting of links for new users. I am out of ideas btw.

Why can't we have a system in place that disallows, even on edit, links in the initial 5-10 posts?

There are plenty of ideas I'm sure we could all come up with, but what's all been tried?

And I'm familiar with Akismet. Use it on my WP blog.
