  • Random Question

    I found the random math question incredibly inconvenient when I signed up for these forums. Why not just use recaptcha?

    This forums old and I think recaptcha requires a google api....so I'm guessing it's not worth the effort.

        I don't remember a random math question, though it's been a few years since I signed up. What was the question?
        It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" Winnie the Pooh

            We have somewhat difficult registration question to stop the live spam shops coming out of Asia. The bots and spam shops blow through captcha like it isn't even there. You only have to do it once and it isn't that difficult Ever since we implemented the questions spam has dropped to almost zero. The few spammers who are devoted enough to get through the registration questions are quickly booted by our moderator staff.

            For those who are wondering here is an example question :

            Count the total number of words in this question and multiply it by three and then subtract one.

              I think it should be changed up to something like: "What is the square root of 3 to the square root of 2 power times the square root of 3 to the negative square root of 2 power?"

                What is this strange language you write? I tried google translate, but steam started coming out of my computer.
