Forgot to mention this when we talked today Chris.
Last year I was getting bombarded with "bot spam" on both my forum and Ron's. Ron's was the worst. I'd get between 20 and 40 a day on his site.
Switching to the registration requirement of having to copy those squiggly letters and numbers Leah mentioned, completely solved the problem.
I haven't had a single bot get through on Ron's board since I made the change.

I use a different message board software on those two sites than you guys use on the Back Porch, but the option was available in the membership registration security levels. Might have Randy look there.
