Hi George,

Nothing is hardcoded in the actual source code, the registration bots are just getting smarter all the time with OCR getting better as well. Most CAPTCH)A mechanims of the free e-mail address systems have been cracked by now (gmail, hotmail, ...) so that gives the spammers a wealth of free e-mail addresses to use (see: http://it.slashdot.org/article.pl?si...45242&from=rss). I will need to upgrade the board software to the most recent version to make it more difficult for the spammers.
