today I just enabled some "challenge questions" for new user signups. these questions should be easy for AA owners to answer, but difficult for bots or spammers to circumvent. The volume of automated signups has reached nearly 10 to 20 a day. This latest change will hopefully address this problem.
these challenge questions should only be for registration, if you are presented with a challenge question when posting please let me know so I can modify the configuration.
General forum announcements, admin, notices etc.

It would appear the questions asked (that nearly any AA owner would know) have prevented the automated signups. Thank goodness for that, it was getting really out of hand!
