I agree. Start authenticating genuine posters and even keep a limit of 20-30 for the authenticated posters as well. Thus we the genuine posters are happy.
I am a staff in another big forum where they can detect autoposters and a bot prevents it from posting by creating auto captcha. Maybe you can look for that bot.
You also need to add a post new thread button separately. When we post a thread, we have to go back to the main section again to post a new one.
