Andrew and Co.

Just a little suggestion for getting some sort of forum register protection from BOTS. The last thing we need are illegal, rude or obscene posts from computers. There are other forums for such taste.

I can suggest...

CAPTCHA

and one example of a type of CAPTCHA is here

Hope this helps, and if you haven't thought about this before, feel free to slam me down and say this was your idea all along...

A CAPTCHA is a really good idea. I would really cut down on BOTS and automatic spammers. Good thinking. ;)
