We are still having loads of problems with spam.

Could you not set up a Q&A CAPTCHA to ask new users a Commodore Music related question?

I've recently updated to Recaptchav3 but apparently they keep on coming. It's safe to assume that those who pass are real human spammers. I used to have the q/a active but then we got overrun; so I condluded they figure out the answers quickly and feed them to their bots. But I'll try it again.

Seems you have to make the question so hard that it can't be solved by google. For instance, "Who composed the music for giana sisters?" will instantly provide the correct answer when googled. Anyway, Q/A now active, let's see how it goes.

Ah, that's interesting. You would think the effort of manually set up these accounts would not be worth the time, but I guess they are betting on sites with minimal moderation once you've registered.

They are retarded cunts, so they keep comming.
I hope they are humans because a bot can't understand when I call it a short-cocked fuckwit.
All is lost.
