Exactly what I meant by making it harder on the spammers but not to the detriment of legit users.

Maybe ALWIL could implement something that we could use to report new users as spammers (based on the site scythe944's site or others)

I have reported two already, and they are still active, though no posts yet...::)

And there are two more today...

Also people will say for safety and security they will say i dont wanna give my real email. Then i got a good idea for them. Its to make a second email for only forum. Then keep the another one for personal,game,etc. This is a good way no ? ;)

No difference as the origin, pick a country at the start of the list rather than where you are is immaterial. A spammer, is a spammer, is a spammer, no matter where they say they are from when they register. They are hardly likely to be telling the truth, just keep hitting the report to moderator link when you see a spammer posting, origin is immaterial.

I think I did try to tell Alwil's web admins to use re-captcha a while back.  It works great on my site.
