Spambots ATTN Eric :)

Hi, I was told you were the guy to talk to about the spambots. Just had a suggestion to help stop them more often. If you look here: ... greed=true

on the registration page, theres a couple of free mods that really do make a HUGE difference, especially because they can be customized to read differently. It really stops spam bots from registering in the first place. Perhaps it's something to be looked at in the future :).

Thanks for the tip. I owe everyone an apology for being so slow to keep things tidy around here.

I just added a custom captcha to the forum registration. Let's hope that helps a bit!
