Allowing guests to post without moderation is not normally considered secure due to the fact that there is a high possibility of getting spam postings and even creating an account when the posting is made will not reduce that - in fact it will probably mean that you will have many spam accounts on your board.

Yes, but not only bots are spammers, there are also human spammers.

This is a good idea but it would require quite a lot of moderation because it might attract many spammers, especially bots.
