News Item: Dear spammers - Say hello to reCAPTCHA
(Category: News)
Posted by sleepy


So, I've decided to try something new to fight the seemingly endless battle against spammers.

Effective immediately, whenever you sign up for an account or make a forum post or comment, you will have to complete a reCAPTCHA test - the thing you've probably seen where you have to type in two words to prove you're a human.

I have included an exemption for anyone who is classified as a Frequent Contributor. Since you are the people that make this site great, you will not have to be annoyed by this new feature.

For the rest of you, I'm sorry for the inconvenience, but I'm hopeful it helps deal with the spam problems.
