Hi Craig – yes, we zapped a few more on the weekend. Luckily they were reported quickly so they didn’t linger long. We did have captcha in the past, but don’t at the moment. We have IP restictions, keyword filters, post throttles and a few other anti-spam features, but the bots (and people) are always innovating!

It’s a balance between making it easy enough for genuine people, without letting the others in. We’re actually redesigning the sign up process (and everything else) so we’ll address some more of this.

All good fun!!
