Every couple of days for the last few days I'm getting SPAM from the bug tracker. Someone who has posted website links as a "bug". I'm wondering is this being done by a bot or an individual and what are you doing to block this person or bot from accessing the bug tracker?

Hello,
This is being done by a bot, which is also smart enough to create a user login too, so all future logins will get an email challenge, and will need to be moderated before the account is set up. I'll take care of this (every day I'll check to see if any users require moderation and deal with it appropriately)

I've deleted a large volume of the fake accounts - there are nearly 300 users in the bug database, most of which have never reported a bug or on this forum. I don't believe I've taken out any real accounts, but if I have please either post here or drop me an email and I'll sort it.
