These spam posts are soooo cheezy, I'm guessing any simple captcha we 
could put in place would send them elsewhere.  I don't use DEO either, 
but the few times I've puttered about, I've poked around I've found 
really nice net things, so I'd hate to see it go buh-bye.  Like having a 
trunk of old books you hardly ever look at... except other people put 
the books in!
