Good news. Hopefully that will hit the spam on the head without being too onerous on the moderators.

I'm puzzled as to how spam is still getting through now that new posters are pre-moderated. Have they somehow found a way to bypass the restriction? (No details of how they are doing it, pleas.)

They're using older accounts that bypass the moderation queue.

Is it possible to add all accounts with a zero post count to those that are pre-moderated? If not, I guess they'll soon run out of such accounts.
