Quote from: allainsim45 on November 19, 2010, 07:01:17 PMThis code is just proposed here because it uses the line " require_once(sourcedir. ' / Subs-Package.php '); ", it can interest some administrators having a little work less.
Quote from: mrtoner on November 24, 2010, 10:38:00 AMI think I can reduce the number there by changing my CAPTCHA setting from Medium to High (I've already tried that and it appears to work), but the resulting image is so difficult to read that I'm afraid that will discourage legitimate registrations. (I know *I* have trouble reading it.) Is there any additional way to reduce the number of spam registrations?

Quote from: teh_Krall on December 04, 2010, 06:05:26 PMSilly question, since most spammers are robots wouldn't that mean they have to use a cut & paste function to put text into the registration fields? If that's the case it would 'seem' like catching them could be done through cut and paste detection. Or am I that naive?
Quote from: teh_Krall on December 04, 2010, 06:05:26 PMAfter years of running this mod all of the sudden we've been getting handfuls of new registrations each day. Stop Spammer is saying they are legit, but when you check out their email logs they are usually numerous with their IPs and user names being clean. I've add the httpBL mod to hopefully combat this problem.
