A little time on your hands, Chuck?

The good news seems to be that since Rick put in the new guards, the false registrations have vanished. (They averaged between two and three a day beforehand.)

Too soon to be sure, but it's certainly much quieter.

And the question you introduced against spammers "what is the name of Harlan Ellison's wife?" is really a hard question since he married like five times. I had to go to wikipedia and it took a while to find current wife.

Complex -

Sorry it took a while. She's mentioned quite often in the Pavilion, but given the assault of board spamming ee had a couple of months ago it had to be something a bit more difficult than "What is Harlan's Last Name"?

Glad you solved the problem. Just proves you're human.

Hey Complex -

At least you have a mouth and don't have to scream...
