Has anyone tried to register a new account on CEC lately? Deciphering the encryption is brutal. lmao

I had no idea it was so difficult to get past the bot counter-measures. On the bright side, we haven't had spam lately.

It pretty much has to be set to that. Perhaps it could be tweaked some, but from what I found if it is set to less we get spam. I increased one setting by a notch a month or two ago when we started getting a few more spammers.

Ok... I got locked out for some reason tonight and had to do the word scramble again. Impossible. It took 3 of us at least 20 tries to get one right.

I just relaxed the settings and tested it. Should be better now but we'll see what it does to spam.

Surprisingly there were still a number of spammers who didn't have a problem with the increased settings. Not sure if I deleted one a week, but definitely one every two weeks.


What are people doing that it requires you to do the capcha other than for starting new accounts?
