Would this work with our forums? The current system is generating a lot of frustration from our new forum users.

he he didnt mean to spoil it for you but quite funny me and orakio discussed the introduction of reCaptcha as a possibility in the new update/upgrade of the forum, however this has it's complications.

reCaptcha as it is now is only fully available to phpBB 2, there is a mod in beta stages that has been confirmed to work with various result in phpBB 3.0.5, it is not all good news however as they are having problems with the verification process.

If we are to use reCaptcha the mod needs to pass out of beta stage into RC or stable +1.x version before it can be considered safe, If not phpBB team decides to make reCaptcha standard for phpBB 3.0.6.

Also wondering if the recent anal spam passes thru our current system or are there small monkeys actually typing past the block? I've deleted my share of not mentionable stuff... :?

theory is that at least 1 of 20 attempts is human, rest are bots.
the group policy experiment was ment to curtail this problematic but it brought more problems with it so it was scrapped,
Indeed yes the bots are getting more advanced and can get passed the Captcha registration control script, i can put the script on extreme complexity, however at extreme complexity not even I can read the letters and numbers
