I think we need to add a couple more barriers to prevent spam. What about limiting posting to X amount of posts, or for new users or something?

I think signing up by invite is not so good because it will prevent people to join easily, but I honestly can’t think of someone making more than 10 posts just after joining and them not being a bot, and if you aren’t I don’t think it’s a big issue to wait a bit more. Obviously the best option would be to have more mods, but there are a lot of communities with dead admins, and the ones that have active admins don’t have more than one. Even if they have more than two, they generally live pretty close and their time zones make at least an eight hour gap where no one will be active.
