Spam loophole in Articles?

This discussion is related to the Articles addon.

It looks like there is some kind of a spam loophole that lets people without accounts post comments on articles. We do not have an issue with spam on our core Vanilla forums:

The above are two examples. Somehow the spammers can post without an account. I do have "Allow guest comments" OFF in the Dashboard settings for Articles.

Please advise...
