Remove colon added to end of Verification Question

As part of implementing anti-spam measures I've created several verification questions (all of which end with a '?') but also some other verification challenges that are not actually questions (eg, "Type the second, third and last letters of the following word: simple", "Type the following word backwards: machine" ).

By default all verification questions are followed by a colon character (:) - this seems a bit redundant for a question but for it also adds a character I don't want included to the end of other verification challenges.

I've edited ./Themes/default/GenericControls.template.php and removed the colon character (:) for my own forum but think that others may also find this change useful.

FIND
', $verify_context['questions'][$qIndex]['q'], ':<br />

REPLACE WITH
', $verify_context['questions'][$qIndex]['q'], '<br />

That's a useful tip/trick, for those that might benefit from it.
