Meh. Each new version of PCIe only doubles bandwidth; Ethernet goes up by a magnitude each time.

We haven't even tried out PCI-E 3.0 yet and we are already talking about PCI-E 4.0??  Jeez.

That's the sound of the progress of technology and it's only going to get faster. You definitely won't see the industry take advantage of PCI-E 4.0 until at least 2017, so don't fret. PCI-E 3.0 is barely just about to be on its knees, and Nvidia still doesn't support it yet. Point being, technology may advance, but the market isn't going to keep pace. I'd even say that the market may skip a generation if too many generations of a certain technology happen too fast.

I'm on it; I do a morning and afternoon sweep to delete 'em all and I'm looking into a spam report option.

If the issue is truly this serious, why not simply switch to a captcha that requires you to identify what the object in a picture is, or to add together two separate numbers? If these are humans we're talking about, who are posting this crap, simply create a downvoting system, like DailyTech does. This way, spammers with a high number of downvotes are automatically report to moderators while keeping the spammer's post at the bottom or hidden until approved by a mod.

Because then everyone complains. Because instead of using capctha they will buy some stupid ass spam filter that detects paterns in posts and block legitimate content instead of spam. Because you know Captcha is actually effective so they can't use that.
