you have no idea how many I've been catching.

I suggested blocking IP strings.

10 from the same string and web series.

We have capatcha and a spam IP database. We prevent bots from joining, but it's the humans that we can't stop. SMH

To prevent spam I add some more verificat ion questions .

Originall y we had

-What is third letter in the word "CIVIC"?
-What does 5+5=?

Now I added

-What is the fifth word of this statement?
-Spell Honda backwards .

It has to be rotating questions .

Whoever is spamming these bots simply has to add a couple more static answers.

You need a dynamic random rotating list of questions IMO.
