Now I only need some stuff to prevent spammers from registering...maybe I'll create a custom mod for this.

We used CloudFlare for awhile until a few of our members started complaining that they could not access our site if their computer was connected to the internet through a cell phone tower.

The only forum I have run into that asks a topic related security question is http://www.ApplianceJunk.com, and if I remember right, it only asked the question once I was bumped up to a higher "expert" rank.

Our anti-spam verification question is asked during registration.

I have only had 4 spammers and they didn't get very far.

Do not heart me......:
Sorry but using this method , bandwidth will loss. I'll prefer use the  Bad Behavior, blockscript, bots scout etc are there.

Are you serious? Are you concerned about the bandwidth of 3 to 5 more lines of code, against thousands of bots hammering your server daily?
