Questy Captcha[edit]

DATE (approximately December 2011) Roger activated Questy Captcha. Reduced spam to near zero.

DNS Blacklist[edit]

10-2-12 Roger activated DNS Blacklist in LocalSettings.php to ban well known spammer IPs. Will be interesting to see if this cuts down on the addition of likely dummy new user accounts that we have see created lately.
