    I, for one, would enjoy captcha on this system. Most of these things are bots. The human spammers are harder to detect, since they can answer any question and will say anything they want in a reg form. Bots... While bots are learning to read CAPTCHA (those "enter the number/letter combo in the box" things), not every bot can yet.

    Spam comes, we delete it. About the best that can be done, since modifications to vBulletin don't seem possible from the IT staff for this website (They're on contract, I gather).

    Just a thought...
