Requiring a post is unlikely to help (we do it in other places) as the spammers will just make the requisite post. If this issue becomes a problem we can look into running the form through some spam heuristics and act appropriately from there. Thanks for the feedback.

You could always have some fun with the spammers while wasting their time.
