I don't think you can call it an anti-spam feature. It makes people read the TOS or at least it helps to get people to reading the TOS.

Hello marc,
I could imagine that spambots have a problem with waiting. Or is there a way to skip? Hm? Yes, I think there is a way to skip or at least to go passthrough automatically.
