Also just a note, we now have a CAPTCHA form so if any are getting through it's likely a human spam farm of some sort.

Uploaded following changes:

- Fixed a few bugs with editing post permitting posting of links
- Fixed bugs allowing linking with images
- Installed Akismet back on to help with spam protection

Let's see how this goes. New users should now not be able to post any clickable links at all. CAPTCHA is on registration, and email verification is required. Hopefully these inconveniences are enough for them to stop.

Surprised they keep signing up, I think it's a human spam farm as they bypass the CAPTCHA no problem.
