I added a new anti-spam feature to the registration screen. Please let me know if you see it when loging on also.

It just asks "what is 2+3". You answer 5 and you're in. It shouldn't be to much of a bother but will save me tons of time each day if I don't have to delete all of the spam bots fake registrations. The robots won't know how to answer this and won't be able to register. I can also easily change the question if needed. It's a shame that this is even necessary but thanks to all the spammers, it is. Shocked


Comments, problems or question? Just ask.

Thanks,

Brad

Some spammers already got through. I had to change the question to:

What is the last name of the famous detective Sherlock?

I don't think the spambots will know this one Laughing

OK, It's working Very Happy The spammers are not getting past the registration. I guess they don't know who Sherlock Holmes is.
