A simple challenge question such as "What engine displacement ? " 1298

My concern of Captcha is that it's usually Flash based (and most people are transitioning away from it due to security problems) and that there are Captcha "sweat shops" providing answers (and bots are getting better) for spammers.

Round-robin questions are needed or a spammer can plug in the single answer into their software and flood the system with new account registrations.

I propose a temporary ban on new accounts entering this community until our leaders figure out what the heck is going on. <Donald Trump voice>

Should we build a wall

I still think a limit of starting 2 threads in 24 hours for new registrations will go a long way towards reducing the problem (note - not limited to 2 posts, just limited to starting no more than 2 new threads)

Has Admin spoken to the Tech Support Team?

I did mention to "Richard" last week, the problem that was occurring here...wondering if they have been able to do/offer anything?

Ken, I am glad I am already signed up. (laughing)

I would sit there entering "1300" for a half hour. Every time the phrase would be rejected, I would bang my head on the desk and yell out a loud Home Simpson like "Doh!!!!," expecting the forum to eventually come to it's senses and realize it was wrong, and that I was putting in the correct answer.

That was the reasoning behind limiting people with under X posts. Some of the limits were to the classified section so that you weren't a dumping ground for hit-and-run sales. People putting things in classified were a part of the community because of participation.
