New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
It should not be possible to register a new account and immediately post to Typophile. That’s how spammers (and students who want us to do their homework for them) get in.

If you don’t like this prospect, what’s your alternative? Nothing? That’s what we’ve got now and it has led, as “moderators” should have predicted, to spammers infiltrating this site. Retaining the current system guarantees more spam. Something has to be done, and the MetaFilter system is proven to work.
