Yes, put the following above the [tmp page_title] line of 
pages/forum/reply.html and pages/forum/submit.html:
[tmp members_only]1[/tmp]

Alternatively you can look into using captchas, I use a combination of 
both so that logged in members don't have to fill in a captcha but 
everyone else does.  Note you will need to download and install the 
captcha tag from:

...and make sure to install the Authen::Captcha perl module as well. 
The tag is documented internally and you can read the docs by typing:
perldoc captcha.coretag

IC certainly will integrate with paypal but I haven't done it myself. 
There are others on this ml who can help you with that more than I can.
