Default Can we require new members to type letters or codes

Can we require new members to type letters or codes in to verify that they are real people and that they aren't computer generated spam punks.

I'm getting sick of seeing them

The only way to sort it out, entering a code is not going to stop teenage children making a little bit of money by ruining these forums.

I've posted this several times. All Larry cares about is making money. The mods have don't have the power to do this. They say we need to upgrade vB in order to get that feature.

So, in order to upgrade vB it will take time and money.

Both of which, Larry does not what to use.

Although, they WILL take the time to add more ads, etc.
