Well if you had bother to check, then you'd know we already have a filter of sorts in place...

It's got jokes too... go look...

Oh yeah, I see it now. :oops:

I'm all out of ideas then.

Although I think the captcha stuff works better because a spambot can't read the answers properly. It would be a lot of work to change the questions over to that sort of format though. I've got Photoshop at work though so if somebody sends me a list of questions/answers I'm happy to sit there and render them into a format that will be a complete cunt for the bots to work out. It'll still be a lot of work at the back-end to get them put in place though so it's probably not that much help.

To be fair, I did say it was underhand.

It's just that something has to give. The only other option would be to set up another new website and call it THE frothers unite UK and Doc can sit there paying for this one - that's also pretty underhand.

But needs must. It's that I or fear for Pete's and Jon's sanity in fighting the spambotters of the East . . . it's not like they have lives or jobs or anything else that they'd rather be doing . . . . . . :loopy:

Pete's only other hobby is cross-dressing and his drag act so he has plenty of time, Jon supports Chelsea, and he's a cunt so bollocks to him :wink:

Can we at least get some more moderators? (If necessary I will even volunteer)

I'm an admin on another hobby forum and we vet all our new sign-up via http://www.stopforumspam.com/

Its not perfect but it does weed out most of the spammers.
I'd recognise that sound anywhere! That's the sound of a hundred heads deflating.

I'm happy to volunteer to bop spam on the head until the gods sort out an automated hamster - is there any special ceremony involved?

Report to the shed for a brief 'training course'...

If we sent all our new sign ups to the shed for 'vetting' then all our spam problems would be solved.
