    This is supposed to be the "Site ideas" forum,not the "Begging for recs" forum.

    Well, the best anti-spam will be not letting non subscribers making posts in the forums...

    No. The best way would be to disallow those with brains no larger than a grape. That is, IQs under 75. I estimate this to be around 33% of current membership.

    I don't think the IQ and a meassure of annoyance is correlated...

    However, there is a correlation between being (considered) annoying and the frequency of the use of strong words and phrases like "Shut up" and such.

    No the best anti-spam idea would be not letting anyone post in the forums. And of course once this happens some will decide to use open invites and PMs and ingame messages to continue. All of these should then be disabled. Finally there may be attempts to spam using actual chess moves. So we should stop allowing chess to be played on the site.

    This would stop all spam and is therefore the best anti-spam idea.

    Perhaps you should set the first example.

    The worst spammer on the site (by far) is STANG, and he's a subscriber. Your proposal is worthless; most other online chess forums are free, so charging people for access will only reduce participation.
