    First time I've noticed it. I'll be doing something about this when I get home tonight.

              OK, I've deleted the spammers, banned their IPs and e-mail addresses, and re-added as well as fixed the captcha. Can someone else make sure they can register a test account using the captcha? I tested from my end and it seems to work fine. If you do create a test user, just let me know here and I'll delete the account after. Thanks, and sorry we had to deal with that spam crap!

                    Ok, I'm going out for dinner but when I get back home I'll be switching from captcha to a question - for example, new users will have to say which team most recently won the Stanley Cup. From what I've read, the captcha doesn't work properly and the question will keep 99.9% of the spambots out.
