Default The Spam Bots

I went and looked at the registration form to see how it handles adbots. Well ... needless to say, having someone just type in a word won't help deter them, they know how to read unless it's a capcha.

Can't you incorporate a capcha instead of having new members type in a word? They're much more effective.

Or you could do what another forum I go to (but I don't browse as frequently) does, and have this:

Basically it doesn't allow you to post unless you put in a logical word or sentence in the box, and I think it's available while registering. I don't remember. xD


Remember you're loved, and you always will be;
This melody will bring you right back home.
