First seen at:

Even though the "nofollow" attribute means no self-respecting search engine will pay those links any attention, they're still there to brighten the day of people using the bug tracker.

Expected result:
I dunno ... a smarter captcha won't make a difference because many of these spambots these days actually have cerebra.

A domain-specific captcha question?

Why not just delete the comments? If it's only a handful of comments, it's easier to just delete them than to write software to stop them from happening in the first place. I checked the source -- there is a comment delete feature if you're sufficiently privileged.

I'm planning to update the site to:

* only make links to a whitelisted set of sites be actual links.
* hide comments until they are moderated.
* hide user email addresses except for username part and first 2 characters of domain, unless the person viewing the webpage is logged in.

Anyone got any objections to any of those?

I think this is better discussed on the internals mailing list,
andd we're likely better off switching to another bugtracking
platform anyway.

Why not simply migrate to Github issues?

We can even align the PHP bug IDs with GH ones.
