Lag through massive spamming

A few minutes ago 3 guys entered a running game and started spamming massivley in the chat. The resulting lag made the game unplayable. (i mean not just 'annoying' but literally unplayable) The spammers continued until most players had left and the game was almost over.

the spamming also caused very high cpu load.

 

I'm rather sure they were not bots, the spam messages contained typical keyboard combinations such as 'asdasdasd' and at one point even 'sorry for the spamming'

The Spammers entered under the following names: "wietplantje", "Mestik", "anaaldropje" I assume they were guests though i didn't check. edit: at least Mestik does in fact have an account.

 

It might be appropriate to implement some sort of anti-spam protection, for example limited messages per 10 seconds.

That's just stupid to deactivate the chat ingame, only because of a few spammers. It's easier to fix it with a spam protection, like no more then 3 msgs in 5 secs.
