Very little. Though obviously that may fluctuate as spammers techniques
improve. My understanding of the motion was that the committee could now
implement moderation of non-subscriber posts if it wished. I don't think
they are being coerced to. It's possible that the problem is fixed well
enough that it's not necessary right now.
Without adding extra work to you Colm, it would be interesting to have a
way to monitor this in detail. I'm sure you have numbers on how many you
block, but how many get through would be interesting (though presumably
that requires human intervention). Is there any easy way to get numbers on
how many non-member posts are currently posted and get through? This was
one piece of info which was missing from the debate.
