Yes, a captcha. I do seem to remember vBulletin having them, although I'm more familiar with those in phpBB... However, the simpler ones are already broken; any decent anti-captcha program knows how to read the characters from them.Prycon said:Yes, it is quite annoying. I don't remember how the registration was on this forum, but on some other forums you'd have to write in a code of number and letters that appear in a picture, to avoid spam bots to auto register. Keep up the good work!
WIKIPEDIA said:In the United States, the residents of the state of Hawaii and the territories of Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) consume the most Spam per capita. On average, each person on Guam consumes 16 tins of spam each year and the numbers at least equal this in the CNMI. Guam, Hawaii, and Saipan, the CNMI's principal island, have the only McDonald's restaurants that feature Spam on the menu. One popular Spam dish in Hawaii is Spam musubi, in which cooked Spam is combined with rice and nori seaweed and classified as onigiri.
Nah, I got that, but they aren't even attempting to sell anything. My Gmail account gets stacks of really random exerpts from books and stuff from random adresses and there is just no point to them. Dunno, I think they need a slap - it's just not required extra work for moderators like yourself BCTrainers and Michael.Kryten said:You have to bear in mind, that the spam posts are almost always automatic. Once a spammer has found a board, they just start their script which will keep creating new accounts and making posts.
Please note that even though this is my first post, I am not a spammer.
