What the fuck is up with the spambots?

No, seriously.
The invisible hand is a lie, the fiendish dogma of the market cultists. Lest the apostasy grows strong, their blood god will devour each and everyone, pious and infidel alike.

a minimal captcha should fix this.

something like 'are you a spam bot?' yes - no

You need something with a longer answer to prevent brute force or low-paid code monkeys getting through.

There is "something" already, it just doesn't seem to be enough. I will schedule a SMF update for next weekend, that may help.
