Agree. I think the registration page should have a CAPTCHA image :roll:

lol I tried the captcha images, the spam bots seem to be able to solve those.
The question and answers confused them for a bit, but now aren't anymore.
The problem is that some spambots use a human to answer the questions.
I'm looking into phpbb3 mods that allow me to use several spam prevention services at once.

I don't want to get overrun. Every day I delete at least 5 spammers.
I'll be more on top of the spam now that I got internet back today!!(until today I've been driving 20 miles every day just to get some internet)

I'll keep trying to deal with them. It's an ongoing battle!

I would suggest using a "project honey pot" script

Cheers...
