    Ask Ubuntu is under heavy spam attack!

    If you have an account there and feel inclined, get in and flag as spam!

    The spam is being removed.

    Looks like it's been fixed now. I suspect they've made registration mandatory. Previously, AFAICT, one didn't need to sign up in order to post.

    I was wrong. While registration was temporarily made necessary to post a question, spammers are now posting answers.

    I can only wonder about the reluctance to make registering necessary for all interaction. It's almost as though a revenue loss to someone would result.
