Hi All,

(For those who stumble upon this among all the spam)

The spammers are winning. It started out with 1 maybe two spammers that needed taking care of every day. No problem.

But now it's going above 20 per day and I can't keep up. I give up. Benjamin needs to implement a stronger CAPTCHA or something like that.

new users should be placed in a highly limited user category until they've been verified. limitations should include no more than 1 thread creation and/or no more than 1 post per day.

also i believe the site is only using 1 securtity question... by adding multiple security questions it will thwart the automated spam bots almost as well as a new captcha.
