    I think the title is self-explanatory. In the past few days the forum has been flooded with spam links, and since the mods often take hours to remove these links, it would probably be good to make account creation hard enough that it can't be done by spambots.

    We have the most updated captcha available on registration, the issue is that they're not bots. These posts usually come from spam farms in developing countries, and the people there are smart enough to get past simple barriers to post. We've implemented quite a few more systems to keep the spam down, and will keep working to reduce the posts for as long as it takes to stop it.
