    I like it and hate it, cause I am ready to download lol, but one think I did to our site is put a 5 step math problem in that they have to answer. It's very easy for anyone to do, but it had kept the spam far far away! We had an issues with spam bots for a little while till I added it, but I do like this idea as well.

    No worries. I will think about posting this custom mod on the forum. It is not a modification yet, just a custom template edit. It may become a paid mod unless I decided to release it for free.
