some security ques


First, this is prob the best py forum software going.
Second, just wondering before I look at everything if you have solutions for the following:

-preventing users from spamming PMs to all users, or multiple users
-preventing mass posts (post limit?)
-preventing brute force of login (though I guess you use django-login)
-preventing search dos by limiting searches/timeout so you can't search over and over with a script (both user search and reg search)
-preventing mass account signup (captcha? though kind of useless, captcha long since broken by human captcha farms or scripts)

signup and brute force of login this is not forum problem
we used django-authopenid for demo, but other users - social-auth for example, etc.
maybe it can be exist at projects/ dir but not in core

Antispam planned but don't know when it will be done, i planned adding something like Throttling decorator from django-piston
