Seriously?? There are numbers in this one!! 490-3(8?)750 Trf(r?)orm(rrn?) Oi vei!!

This one has to be a joke:
Same here & I am on a tiny cell phone screen so I have to keep scrolling up to see if I have the ****ing thing right, no I like to post a. Lot. & I don't think this CAPTCHA thingy is gonna do it for me either.

I'm posting this on a phone. Its not that difficult... not once did I scroll up to check if its right after typing it.

I usually get it right by the second try. Beats an hour in the morning and not even wanting to come on because you know there is going to be a ton of spam and not even feeling like looking at the forum after that.

MAny people complained about the spam. Well... they're trying. Its going to take a few times of adjusting to get anything right. Threatening to stop posting isn't helping find the solution. Instead of complaining, why don't you give suggestions? Much more constructive than saying "well, I'm not posting!". Chaz will continue, whether you're posting or not.

Just my two cents.

It's a process, I'm glad changes are being made regardless. It'll take a while to work out the kinks but for now, at least we aren't getting flooded with spam every 32 seconds

Since all the spam (at least for me) was in PM, why not put the CAPTCHA thing on the PM? Like in order to send a PM to someone, you have to fill out the CAPTCHA thing on there?

It's NOT just in PM - the mods just do a great job trying to get rid of it, so we don't see most of it unless you get on chaz really early or late.

What? Have you really not seen it? LOL Majority of the spam was on threads/in their own thread. PM spam isn't as big of a deal because mods don't have to spend majority of their day deleting it and nobody sees it except for the ones that got the PMs.

Because it's not just about you? The mods have been working their tails off to keep our forum relatively spam free. Now that we have a fix (yes, it's an annoying fix but it's still a fix) people are doing an awful lot of complaining. If it's really going to keep you from posting well...so be it.

This. Any idea how much time the mods spend cleaning our spam around the forum (not in PM's)?

Goodness gracious GIVE THEM TIME TO WORK OUT THE KINKS. They've already said AND made a special announcement post that this is just a temporary fix and they are working on it. They aren't trying to make your life difficult. So just say "THANK YOU MODS for keeping us as spam free as possible" and move on.
