      Lots of spam accounts lately?

      Is it feasible to increase the difficulty to create new accounts on SDR to reduce/eliminate these spammers? Seeing more and more of them lately.

      I changed it to Image Verification. Let's see how well that works.

      Yeah, no kidding. I just opened "what's new" for the day and more than ⅓ of them were spam.

      I turned off Image Verification and setup an Answer Question for account registration. Let's see if that helps.
