How do I restrict product reviews to registered users?

As it stands, the current method of doing product reviews is a nightmare to manage even with moderation. Is it possible to restrict posting reviews for registered users only?

I know it doesn’t prevent the problem of spam bots signing up but if the registration form had some form of bot protection, at least it’ll be safe by inheritance.

Thanks.

Has anyone figured this out yet?  Even if it’s a slight change to the code.  Any direction would be helpful.

This is a definite problem. With moderation on my site I’m still seeing 20-50 spam reviews a day. It’s a real hassle to delete them. Frankly, I’d be happy just to be be able to completely disable reviews entirely. Disabling reviews in the advanced tab of system configuration only prevents legitimate users from leaving reviews, the code to allow them to be posted is still active, which means S-P-A-M.

How about integrating an optional CAPTCHA, by default, into all forms that come with Magento? Feature request!
