But that wouldn't stop these guys anyway, they are real live people with the ability to solve captchas , not just computers.

Maybe ... but how would you go with captchas in foreign language and script?

Hi James,

In my experience, it does stop 99% of them. It's just unprofitable for them to spend much time on each registration, - they do it with automatic registration software to get the mass coverage.

These programs are able to solve common captchas.

Hi Tilt,

tiltbillings wrote:This might be of interest. If one goes to the member section memberlist.php" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; the last page, as of this writing, is 277, and looking at page 277 and working forward one will see what are almost exclusively, for pages, Chinese spammers. From what I understand is that this is not the result of bots; rather, it is the result of human drones at work.


This is most probably done with automatic registration software.

I would recommend to delete all accounts that were not used for a year and left no posts, and also those with unreadable names, so that they will have no inroads into the upcoming forum.

The garlic spam actually looks kind of tasty.

Don't be fooled!
Gain and loss, status and disgrace,
censure and praise, pleasure and pain:
these conditions among human beings are inconstant,
impermanent, subject to change.

Knowing this, the wise person, mindful,
ponders these changing conditions.
Desirable things don’t charm the mind,
undesirable ones bring no resistance.

His welcoming and rebelling are scattered,
gone to their end,
do not exist.
- Lokavipatti Sutta

"When you meditate, don't send your mind outside. Don't fasten onto any knowledge at all. Whatever knowledge you've gained from books or teachers, don't bring it in to complicate things. Cut away all preoccupations, and then as you meditate let all your knowledge come from what's going on in the mind. When the mind is quiet, you'll know it for yourself. But you have to keep meditating a lot. When the time comes for things to develop, they'll develop on their own. Whatever you know, have it come from your own mind.

No, not fake - but it's only one pixel thick and not at all nutritious.
