    I've had to change the anti-spam question for registration on the forum to something a bit easier. People were having trouble getting the answer and that was driving away registrations.

    Now that it's easier, there have been more spammers joining the forum. If you don't mind, whenever you see their posts, don't reply to them, just report the post and I'll be along to ban them and delete their posts / threads.

    Thanks, and I apologize ahead of time for having to put up with them. They are getting to the point where nothing can really stop all of them.

    What was the original question? It's been so long I can't remember. And what's the new one?

    Well the second one had alot of potential answers, and people would give up after a few of them. I had it down as the city, but a few people had trouble with it because they were putting in "governors mansion", etc.

    The first and third no one seemed to have trouble with, but the spammers know the answer as well. It's only time before one figures it out then they must log it for the spam bots.

    I've always been glad that the question isn't: What gun is better, glock or XD?

    We gave up using anti-spam questions on TN because they just kept working around it. The Chinese are our biggest problem, with the Indians a close second. I must ban a half dozen spammers a day, and some of them while they're still signing up by checking their IP. If it's China, they're history.
