Ok, went from CAPTCHA to question ("What is the name of the company that makes Ultimaker brand printers?")

I didn't know that one yet :-) Maybe Jennyprinter will offer a UM2+ upgrade kit with just the feeder - unlike Ultimaker who plan to rip off all customers that already have a UM2 with Olsson Block by paying for another one... sorry, I am getting off topic...

You can do enigma questions.

What's nuclear and cleans the nozzle? An atomic pull
What's the common nozzle size on a um2 not plus? 0.4
What's the main source of the pla? Corn
If you open a boz and there's nothing it's... (empty)

Ok I should go back to work XD

I opted for a simple thing like 'What are the 5th and 9th letters" in the domain, sort of thing. (Not that this is the question I used, I don't want the Google search to find it)

I'm also working on the moderator role. There's a glitch where if I make someone a moderator, they have to approve their own posts.

As soon as I sort that out, some Euro-users will be appointed moderators. Especially a certain fella from Spain...or anyone else that wishes to help

Looks like we had an attempt today. Someone reported it and I quickly checked into it.

I also rotated the new user anti spam question too. Bots are a bit easier to defend, human ones are just a hassle.
