I'm interested to know how you can combat spam when you allow guest posting, anonymously and without IP logging. Seriously, how do you stop it and how to you block persistent spammers? Do you have staff on-line 24/7?We have a fair amount of experience running boards, so we are familiar with spam issues and we have developed a number of ways to combat.
I think that this should be a public consumption thing - I have seen lots of requests for anonymity. I don't think it would be that hard for XenForo to have this feature built in - and of course it'll be disabled by default.Uh huh. And what happens when someone bans the IP? In a perfect world, sure, you can expect the staff to just ban users. And when they don't?
The recommendation is not something that should have been put out for public consumption as it has the ability to break a site rather spectacularly.
