All,

Over the past couple of weeks we have seen an increase in spam bots. A spambot is an automated computer program designed to assist in the sending of spam.

We, at planet steelers have been working on a solution to fix the problem. The past several weeks, the moderators and myself have been banning bots and deleting all spam posts.

However, as of today I have made 2 changes to the forum that should minimize all spamming.

1) The registration captcha has changed. This is the confirmation box displayed during registration

2) An additional question is required during registration. The question is "Is Ben Roethlisberger #7". The default answer is "No" and obviously must be changed to "Yes". This should make registration more difficult on bots.

Thanks,

J
