    Captcha on new threads

    Could a google captcha be added as a requirement when creating a new thread? It should get rid of the current spam.
    It had to be done...

    You can't do that. Do you realize how many people are India?

    Well:

    1) Not all spam bots are indian. This would also keep indian users from posting on the forums so it would be a terrible solution.

    2) Captchas take a few seconds. Unless you create a new thread every few minutes, it wouldn't be much of an hindrance.

    What Trion really needs to do is spend some of the bitstore money on upgrading this forum.

    They say most of your brain shuts down on the Defiance forums. All but the impatient side, and the sarcastic side. No wonder I'm still awake.
