I have deleted over 700 accounts from the forum over the weekend. Since 7/25, I was getting 40-50 registrations a day. Apparently one of the bot programs captured my "are you human" question, so the bots were just waking right in. I changed the question...and that stopped them for a couple of days. Then I guess they got a human to answer the new question...which wasn't much different; it was just one more letter. So now I have changed the question to be what state we are in. Shhh. Don't give it away in the forums. LOL!

This is the last step. If this doesn't keep them out for a while, I will lock down the registrations and require an e-mail to me to request access. This is getting stupid.
