[racket] planet bug reporting system: taken over by spam

Hi all: I'm sorry to say that I've just disabled planet's bug reporting
system. Over the last 24 hours, we've gotten about 2,000 spam bug reports.
(They are all gone now.)

I'm also sorry to report that I deleted bug number 509 by accident (it was
not spam).

The bug report system was using recaptcha (still is there, actually if you
want to see: http://planet.racket-lang.org/trac/newticket) but apparently
that's now been broken.

I'm not sure what's the right approach to take in fixing this, so if people
have suggestions I'm all ears and motivated in a way that I wasn't last
time this came up on the list.
