I agree with Lorenzo,

recaptcha and e-mail validation reject 99% of spammers.

So, as I understand you need quck access of new users to demo instance.
May be make level access for each account?
For example unvalidated user can create demo instance of Odoo, but can't write to forum.
Validated user can write to forum.

Thanks and Best Regards!

Thank you Lionel.

Stephen, as was explained already, they are simply spammers who took the time 
to make accounts just for the purpose of spamming.

All the accounts involved were deactivated (they cannot login anymore, but it 
will not prevent them from making new accounts of course).

Our signup process is very open *on purpose*, because we prefer to make life 
easier for all the real users and customers out there (no captcha and similar 

I think a simple recaptcha would not be so annoying, as it would be used at registration only.
Even if the spammers of these days are humans, we will need some spam protection sooner or later.
