In the last few days there have been some pretty sturdy spambots posting up a storm on here.

If you see any posts, please try and resist the urge to reply to any of them, as the threads will be deleted asap anyway.

If the spam scales up any further I'll have to implement some ghetto security much like last time it became a problem.

I ended up adding an extra checkbox that needs to be ticked on registration. No idea if it will hold the spambots out. As per, time will tell.

I also added a custom field so people can specify their preferred throwing style, and it will be displayed on your profile, and your posts under the location as you can see on the left there. If you feel like setting it, you can do so via the User Control Panel (click on Profile).

Oh yeah, new smilies also. ;-(*)
