CAPTCHA

The forum registration CAPTCHA: "Does seven plus three equal ten?" has amazingly fooled spam bots for two months now. :) Anyone want to place bets on how long before it's bypassed?!

My heart skipped a beat when I read this, had to re-calculate 7+3 to make sure!
Interesting stats: 101 users who have registered on the site have made 0 posts. 173 users have made less than 3 posts. I might install the Stats mod.

For better or for worse, I think a lot of users didn't make the transition from the group to the forum. I'm glad to have the forum - organization and easy viewing of archives are always desirable.

Then there are other users like me who are active in spurts. I've got some modules waiting to be designed but no time for the moment. When I do, I'll be more visible. :)
