Visual Confirmation for Registration - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Greetings:

Registration for the RF Cafe forums is encouraged, but not required. If you had difficulty with registration, it might have been due to not entering the visual confirmation code properly. It is case-sensitive, so please observe upper and lower case characters per the displayed code.

I had to implement the visual confirmation just last week because malicious software robots crawl the Web looking for forums to join to stage attacks at a later time. I found three that had "joined" and deleted them, then implemented the visual confirmation. It is an unfortunate reality of online existence. Like I mentioned in my post, I wouldn't shed a tear over more of the :smt013 spammers getting knocked off like that one in Russia.
