    What's hard about keeping this lot out is that it's not bots... it's actual people going through the registration process then the bots take over.... Can't imagine they EVER get anyone to click through any of their garbage links so what's the point of going through the trouble of registering??

    the frequency and amount of spam is getting worse each day!

    We've talked about taking a few extra measures but that might make it harder for everyone to post, not just spammers.

    One thing we can do is add one of those image verification steps (type what's in the image) to submit a post/reply.

    We have it on the sign up already. It's real people creating accounts for spam (not bots).
