In an effort to eliminate spambot registration, I just upgraded the visual confirmation engine to a more robust one.

It is a lot more difficult to bypass and the slight drawback is that even for humans, it will require a little more effort than normal.

Let's see in the next few days if there is any improvement and if spambot registration can be minimized if not eliminated...

Hehehe... yes. I tried it myself registring a test account and it is much more difficult compared to the original system. Well so far, no spambots have been able to register... which I think is a good sign.

I think they can... BTW, sarge, have you tried it to see if it's challenging enough? You don't have to complete the registration, the image appears on the form anyway...
