Title: "Why do I have to prove I'm a human to post? I already did when I registered!"
Post by: Mr. Bill on April 15, 2016, 10:46:23 AM
We're being targeted by some very stubborn spammers from Ukraine and/or Russia this week.

We're trying to put some obstacles in their way.  At the moment, we're requiring anti-spammer verification for everyone's first post only.  If you've already made at least one post here, this won't affect you.

Not sure whether we'll keep this feature, or change the number of posts required, or turn it off.  Sorry, I know it's an annoyance.  We'll see how things go with the spam.

I was wondering about that! For my first post in years, it required that 'verification', but like you said, it only required it the one time. 

Keep up the good work!!!

Obviously not from the Donetsk area... or do spammers get paid? Maybe someone found a way to make money..
