Well, I didn't make my point very clear, so please let me explain.

Right now the project is in experimental phase.  If we do major changes
right now, the harm is minimal.

If spamming happens one year from now, two years from now... we'd have
many users submitting data.  Suddenly, we would have to invent something
new, and it will probably be impossible within the framework used right
now.  This would most likely mean we'd have to literally kick all users
from the system and start over.

Best regards,
