I seem to remember having seen some earlier topics / threads about this,
but the answers site is experiencing quite some intense spamming in the
past few days. I've just deleted 40+ spam questions from a single
account (alaa.elwakil82 at yahoo.com) again.

Would it perhaps be an idea to add some simple countermeasures, like we
have on the wiki? That seems to be a low enough barrier to not
discourage newcomers, while at the same time keep spam manageable.
