This is the only spam question on http://djangoforum.com/.

For now I've just deleted it through the admin.

I don't know if it's going to come back next time the feed is fetched.

Let wait and see if it was an isolated incident or if we should remove djangoforum.com from the aggregator.

There's another one in https://www.djangoproject.com/community/q-and-a/ (search for "apnea").

I'll try to get in touch with the owner of the website.

I've contacted the owner of the website and they've activated a CAPTCHA so it should cut down on spam.

Thanks for reporting this.

The owner contacted me again today telling me that they're still getting spammed.

I've disabled the feed in the admin (id 699) for now and deleted the last spam entries.
