Man, we must have a really bad Captcha system.  Bots can get it, but it took me 3 tries to figure out what letters I was supposed to be typing in.

Or... maybe I was the spambot all along!
I'm not arguing, I'm explaining why I'm right.

Nah, based on the bots I'd say the Captcha is trying to filter people that speak English.

The bots are posting stuff like "Urine knight, coping he elapse." which sounds like a rejected Shovel Knight villain. "Next premises, fails, treatment polypeptide." might be a typo that promises failed treatment and "This ambivalence officers extremis; crepitations." seems like the exact opposite thing you'd want medication to do. And I submit their king.

Catheterization protrusions sounds a little more than kinky.
I'm working on the rest, it'll be up soon.

I'm laughing so hard at this... But i probably shouldn't. I mean, the spam is only likely to get worse as time goes on...

Make sure you get the whole quote... We wouldn't want it taken out of context, now would we?

Turned on a few features that should cut the spam out. Hopefully. If it doesn't work, we'll take extra measures.

We appreciate that aDMg.

Honestly, about the captchas ... don't question and answer fields work better? Like "what's D&D 3e mean?" -> "Dungeons and Dragons Third Edition" or things like that. If you put up like 5 of those from a pool of 20 then spambots will have to be programmed specifically for this site. As best I can tell spammers don't target, they just fish to see if they can beat built-in captchas, right?
Sigh. Not again. :(
