They try to log in every day around the same time and try a bunch of times. They can't do that now. It really didn't do anything but fill up my error log but I like a clean house. I'm so happy they are GONE! Maybe I should find some really disgusting where I could direct them just in case some happen to be real people.It's interesting that since I added the "reason for joining" mod, they all type in 6 random characters. That alone tells me they are not people because they type exactly 6 each time. What I don't know is how they get past the questions that I ask... just 3 but they must have the right answers. Maybe they are people to start with, then once they're in, they send bots? I don't know much about that stuff but I am certainly a happy camper now that they're gone!!

On top of that, there is a distributed list where the question and answers are solved initially by a human then shared with all the other copies of the bot, if that makes sense...
