I agree with the desire to fight spam and to make it easier to do so. However, the plan is to no longer use Trac in the future and instead report issues directly on GitLab where we're hosting our code. Therefore I wouldn't expect any work to be put into Trac anymore at this point so I'm closing this ticket.

Also note that - at least as far as I'm aware of - we are already using Trac's spam filter so those posts you see now are just the ones that it didn't catch automatically. I assume that those are coming from people who are being paid for creating spam messages rather than automated bots but I might be wrong.

Anyway, hope that helps.

Well you very much need to put a banner on the top of https://issues.adblockplus.org/ about the future move.
That people would learn about it when following up to bugs here.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
