That same collector spammer has been there for months. I usually get to 
it first and delete the collector entries before anyone gets up in the 
US due to the time difference. This is not a new phenomenon.

I personally would not like to put any obstacles in the way of people 
who file bug reports, either. It's a tough choice. And any "content 
filtering" to try and detect spam content is never going to work well, 

How about a compromise where collector entries have to go through a 
simple review/publish process like any other content? I wonder how hard 
that would be to stitch into that collector.
