PLEASE incorporate one of those image verification things

admins, you should incorporate one of those things where you have to type in the text that appears in the picture, so that we can get rid of all these stupid ad bots that are posting on here lately.

thanks

I think Bruce tried, but I think there is a problem with GD library on this server.

The problem is that vBulletin's CAPTCHA is weak, most today's bots can easily read the image.

I like that logic, sort of like 'anyone can break into my car, so I don't lock the doors"

I find that works better is to not choose a password, but have vBulletin assign a random password that is emailed to the user's account. Change the vBulletin initial e-mail message to a custom message, so the bot can't word-count to figure out where the new password is.
When the user first signs in with the password that was e-mailed to them, they can then change to their own password if they desire.
