    Spambot Concerns

    I've noticed that we seem to be getting a lot of spambots lately.

    Is there anything that can be done about this?

    I've changed the captcha to a question based one. Now they have to be able to do maths or read the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

    Yay. Not really fond of the spambots. Thanks!

    I think they might be exploiting a vulnerability in vBulletin. If so, there's not much I can do to stop them.
