Agreed. You may be surprised to learn that there are actually programs out there that will search the internet for these types of forums automatically. When it finds one, it will automatically sign up for an account and then post SPAM messages. This is why many sites (including yahoo groups) have the user enter text that it seen in an image...it is to prevent these bots from being able to create new accounts.
