Spambot defense
« on: January 12, 2017, 11:07:26 pm »
A feature has been enabled that requires a few questions be answered before a new user can register. It should bust the various spambots that have been creating accounts right through the visual verification.

I just hope the questions are not too specific to this site. However, the answere can be easily be found on this forum or Google by searching.

Cool. It's like on LN, one or two bots will pass the anti-spam toys, but it does its job quite well. :)
