The spammers have found the board again. I'm getting a dozen or more requests for a name and password everyday from "web-bots". It's to the point where I can't tell whether a request is legitimate.

To get a username and password, simply send a note to tom[@]associatedcomputer.cc (leave out the brackets). Include your real name. I don't mind you changing your name after you're set up. But if I don't recognize you, I'll figure you're a spammer trying to get on the board. A brief note of introduction would be in order.

Have you concidered a CAPTCHA ? Is a phpbb3 ? If so, I have to check on mods myself,as my own board was found, too ...

It is a version 3 board, pretty close to current. I haven't looked at the mods for some time. There may be something available.

Ok, I need to implement one anyways and will keep you updated.

Btw. did you take the NSA Board offline ?

P.S.: No CAPTCHA yet. phpbb.com has been hacked, too ! Welcome to the club ...
