    Alright, for serious guys, can we do SOMETHING to keep the bots away? Add Captcha? Get some more mods who DON'T live in Australia (even if they do keep crazy hours like Bento)? something? Anything?

    Spam kills forums. We need to do what we can to keep it to a minimum.

    Anybody?

    Bueller?

    Captchas are easily broken and only serve to annoy real users.

    If not that, then something. It's just an idea. There's gotta be something we can do.

    We have been talking the last couple days about introducing some extra spam detection, if all goes well we will have something up soon.

    This is the plugging i have been looking at to combat the spam, its the same spam protection used on the blog which works quite well:

    If anyone has any other thoughts we are open to suggestion.

    Hmm. I would say a "secret answer" spam filter would be easier than this.
