^I haven't tried niceties or diplomatic exchange, but something tells me it won't help against this relentless army of spambots. ;)

Probably need a captcha on the user sign-up section, then bots won't be able to create accounts in the first place.
Preparation for detonation...

Agreed on captchas, they work perfectly.
We also got them on my writer's board and we were never ever spammed yet.

...or the trivia questions like, "What is the Smashing Pumpkins' first album"? I like those better, because I always have to try around three times on the captchas haha!

Heh, yeah, I struggle with them too, but they are effective :) But yeah, an SP trivia question would work well enough for an SP forum, good idea 8-)

Yeah, those captchas are effective! They keep real people out almost as well as they keep bots out, haha!

Yeah +1 for pumpkins trivia. ^ And nice trick question to separate the die hards from the casual fans. (Gish is not the Smashing Pumpkins first album ;) )

Where is Murder these days? I could really use his help. As RottingApples mentioned, we are looking into doing another contest and he's the only that can help us out.
