I’ve recently deleted 3-4000 unwanted registrations on the forum.
That just left 40-50 per day to sift through and then delete.
So, on the registration page, I changed the spambot countermeasures from the distorted text image to a simple question and answer.
Bingo. The registrations stopped.
Modern spambot programmes can read a distorted image but not answer a question.
How dumb is that.
‘Rust’ topic has now moved to Tech T 1 2 3.
Anyone having trouble registering or loggin in, let me know.
