    Howabout using the same Captcha functions that you use when creating content or adding a comment to a howto for the forum here?

    I just noticed there's been quite a bit of spam focussing here.

    I'am not sure if the spam is submittetd by scripts bots or "human bots"...

    There is a captcha when you register a user in the forum and unregistered users are not able to post.

    There are plenty of methods to circumvent captchas. In the okopipi blog there were a few ways on how to do it and I just think the one of the drupal is a lot harder to crack then the one of vB...
    Another possible thing as captcha would be like a question: What is the capital of India... or how many states does the US have or the Marseilleise is the national hymn of what country or or or....

    Maybe give some more known users the option to delete "spam" ?
