Yeah, now that registration is fixed, spammers can register again.

I'll see what I can find out about defeating them.

I've made a significant update to the CAPTCHA that's used during registration; it's a bitch and a half to read now so I can't see any bots making it past it.

I've modded it to make the captcha a bit more human readable--but it should cut back on the spam significantly.

I'm going to install another mod tonight (it takes a bit too long to do at work) that should help even further.

In the over 15 hours since I installed the new captcha, there have been 0 new spam posts and 0 new spam registrations.

Hopefully this will keep us ahead of the bots for a while!
