Hey, born4trance... I welcome you first of all to the forum. Hope you'll have a nice stay, and that you keep coming back...We're having a nice time here
As for SPAM protection, and CAPTCHA's in particular. There might be, or definitivly will come something that will defeat that, but for now it's (in my head, and I don't know much, hehe) the only real shield against SPAM-bots... Live SPAMMERS is harder to protect oneself from, eh ?. I have had CAPTCHA's on my GB for about a year now, I think... and I haven't got one single SPAM post. So, something's good about it still. But then again, there are different versions of CAPTCHA's and some might be easier to crack than others. Hopefully Bram's solution is foolproof
I also await the perfect solution, to this and many other things...But I'm not holding my breath, hehe... I don't look good in blue.
