Yah. The Motorcycle.com app does that automatically unless you edit or turn off your signature. I guess we should refrain from disallowing new users to post links.

I can't speak from experience for this particular solution but I assume this means some bots will end up making 11 garbage posts before leaving to ensure they get their link on the site, but it should cut down on simple bots for sure.
--> Just food for thought.


I totally get not taking advice from a JR. with >50 posts, but read up on Q&A verification as I believe it's your best bet, as it poses a totally unique problem that bots can't logically figure out.


Simple to do too.

"While balancing on a piece of wood, two inches by four inches known as a 2x4, John and his friend Sally both spotted a dalmatian in the passenger seat of a truck with sirens that was headed to put out a fire. Guess the color of the vehicle that the dalmatian was drooling in."

Answer: red


Anyways, un-subbed now, best of luck.

There are a ton of mods that are no longer active that just take up space on the mod list. And as far as I know we only got 1 new one recently. Some of us here would not mind lending a helping hand.

The advice was taken and we appreciate it. A convoluted security question was added:


While balancing on a piece of wood, two inches by four inches known as a 2x4, Maynor and his friend Fergie both spotted a penguin inside an igloo next to a polar bear with sirens, headed to put out a fire. Guess the color of the bear that the penguin was next to.


We are working toward eliminating spam. There are several plugins in place, but they are not perfect.

Spam operations are evolving and they still manage to get through.
