Hi all,
I want to know whether my solution to prevent spam is workable.
Can you still post that easily?

Yes, it works. I sometimes wonder why I don't get asked a question, but that's fine. Wink The amount of spam seems to be 0 since you've activated the spam protection. Nice work.

IMHO it's a fairly good balance between "easy to SPAM - difficult to login".
The only problem I had was when I answered MS CEO? with Steve (Ballmer) instead of Bill. But now I even know the 6# code without looking Smile

@Mittineague: The questions were my fault Wink Didn't think of the issue that the CEO could be someone else Wink hehehe. I'm gonna change the questions every 1 or 2 months.

@Mark: When first answered the question it sets a cookie that stays until you quit the browser so only one time check for every session.
