    There is a CAPTCHA attached to the registration process. We'll need to come up with a better scheme to manage the forum. They keep coming back, and we keep cleaning it.

    Why not assign this work to some forum members? Maybe a "Mark as Spam" button can be added and some one of u guys can verify the thread and delete if required. And Please remove those members who post such shit.

    Very impressive that their bot can decode a current-gen captcha. Didn't even knew it was possible.

    Maybe you should try those select-pictures ones:

    There is some companies paying humans to identify the captcha....

    Even these creative ones...

    Yeah, there are also websites which show CAPTCHA from elsewhere, to users of the website, to get them to solve CAPTACA for their bots. So the hapless user enters a CAPTCHA to be able to view a viral video, and the owner uses it to register a spam bot.

    @v998 , ''There is some companies paying humans to identify the captcha.''

    LOL

    And after a google search... You're right!

    https://2captcha.com/

    How lame is that: ''What you do for a living?''

    ''Oh well, I solve captcha for Chinese/Russian spambots''

    We're investigating. Humans are creating the accounts. Bots are spamming. We've modified the registration process and they still get through. Will continue cleaning and working on new solutions.

    I don't know if you can implement a reddit style system, where users are initially gated quite heavily on making new threads, but as they receive more "likes" without being reported, the restrictions drop off?
