what plugins handle spam posts on BBpress forums?

    Got my first spam post today on my new BBpress forum. So Akismet does not look at posts? How do you manage spam on a BBpress forum?

    bbPress 1.0.x or 2.0?

    I’d also appreciate a run-down on BBPress2 anti-spam measures.

    In my forum, I prefer not to require users to make accounts.

    We allow anonymous comments in our blog, and Akismet blocks all the spams; but our bbpress is getting flooded with bogus topics and replies.

    What about adding a field to post requirements. Perhaps requiring them to do a simple math formula prior to posting?

    Ie:

    Name

    Email

    Please prove that you are human: 1+5=

    Is this an option?

    justin, there is a wordpress plugin, Math Comment Spam Protection:

    http://sw-guide.de/wordpress/plugins/math-comment-spam-protection/

    which i *think* might be almost reasonable for a non-programmer (like me) to extend to bbpress 2 for anonymous posters. what appears to be missing in bbpress (at least i can’t find it) is a filter hook analogous to ‘preprocess_comment’ for bbpress topics and replies.

    has anyone here come up with a non-captcha based solution to allow anonymous posting without being overrun with spam?
