Wow, what spammers are willing to do now!
« on: May 23, 2020, 07:27:55 AM »
Pretty sure you all know that bots/spammers have been hitting here pretty hard for a while now.  So I finally decided to try something more complex to keep them away. 

I used to have some questions that you'd answer before you could join.  Didn't seem to help.  Now I link to a youtube video and ask you what it wants you to join:

What does this video want you to join:
Notice I didn't even hyperlink it, so you have to manually copy/paste.

The answer isn't in the text in the description or title, you actually have to watch the video.  AND A SPAMMER ACTUALLY DID!
