i changed some settings to make the captcha's harder. let's hope this helps a bit. though registrations through 'mechanicalturk'-style schemes will still pass this :-/

Indeed. I don't understand why people put those ads on forum likes this... It's annoying & completely useless.

Those messages come from automated scripts running on infected computers everywhere. and they work on the assumption that if 1 person in 10000 clicks or buys something, the effort is already paying off.
Since the spambot-writers only have to write the software to inject those messages once, and they can send spam to thousands of websites, reaching millions of people, it's worth it.

I deleted some user-accounts and checked up on our spam-fighting mechanism.
