Spam protection on our Forums

As you know if you’ve spent any time on the Polarion Community in recent months, our forums had become a target for spammers. We have just implemented some new anti-spam measures on the forums and also completed a review of our account base. We’ve removed many accounts that were obviously spambot accounts. During the review process we might have removed a few legitimate accounts (only accounts having zero posts would be affected). If we did in fact remove your legit Community account, please accept our apologies and consider registering again.

Now we use http://recaptcha.net/ protecion for new user registration, so we hope to reduce the spam significantly.
