Spam Problem

As you all have probably noticed, some dbag has been spamming the entire network relentlessly, especially here on POD in the last week or so.  So far I have simply been deleting the spam after it is posted and banning the username, but I'm getting beyond annoyed with it.  As a result, I have instituted a 1-day waiting period for new users, meaning they have to wait 24 hours to post anything.  I would rather not do this since I'm sure people want to start posting right away when they sign up, but for right now this is the best way to combat the spam problem since I can just look at the members list and ban the spammers before they actually post anything. 

Just an FYI...

UPDATE: One more FYI, if you sign up for the site I can activate the membership so you don't have to wait the full 24 hours.  I just realized that as I looked at how provisional memberships work.
