    Been seeing some spambots on the forum lately. Maybe look into another deterrent to add to the registration form?

    Is that why all the old threads are resurfacing??

    Spam bot adds a post - spam gets deleted - but thread still marked as recent.

    That and new members bumping up old threads unknowingly.

    Spam is always fun to read. It's odd what is advertised sometimes... :D

    It's also a way of getting viruses, malware, trojans and other crap you don't want on your computer.

    Maybe we can come up with some creative reef questions to stump the spammers. Like requiring applicants to give the dimensions of a standard 120 gallon tank, or asking for the full phrase for RO/DI.

    Me either.
    Largely because 120 gallon tanks don't actually hold 120 gallons.
    Reality of a 48x24x24 is more like 100 gallons.
    Ok, nit-picky.
