Huge spamming in "Adarqui is a Frank Yang hater" thread

What's the deal with that? Its a massacre the last days in there! I know it's an anonymous no-signup-needed thread so it's easy to auto-post there but is there a way to control it?
The anonymous is a good thing because posts won't appear in the 'recent posts' of the main page , but i am using RSS feed and it's driving me nuts!
woot

Yup^^^

Andrew is aware of it though... to me it's pretty annoying because I always see the hole as highlighted with new posts in the side bar.

Yeah, i know its weird because that's the concept of the anonymous thread , posting without account, so that makes those threads spam-vulnerable.
I didn't check if you can block sub-threads from the feed. I mostly use the feed for quick access to the new posts and then the "Recent posts" from the main page and the "Show undead posts since your last visit" when logged on. One easy workaround is to subscribe to the "Recent posts" which does not include the anonymous threads.
Edit : Subscribing to "Recent posts" won't work , anonymous posts don't show in the main page listing but when you go to the actual page they do, FML
No big deal, just letting you know.

gj :D

ya i temporarily removed full anonymous posting... we can post, it'll show up as anonymous etc.. but i temporarily removed the ability of non-members to post.

i was kind of enjoying seeing how big that spam thread was getting though.. haha.
