Well the spammers have done it again and are attacking this site pretty forcefully. I implemented some changes, and the math problem is back, I am sorry to say. 

I will continue to monitor and see if that changes anything, but the automatic spam bots are able to get through some fairly advanced blockades, so I had to do this to see if it makes a difference.

Sorry for any inconvenience!

Sincerely,

For a long time John was getting spammers for Kitchen cabinets in the UK. Can not imagine they sold a single thing. I would send them a bill for advertisements. Hopefully some fool in accounting would just write a check and pay it.

It appears that my additional safeguard may be working *knock on wood*

I am sorry for the inconvenience on the "math problem" but this is the simplest way, for now.

After extensive research, I am not the only forum getting hit, and these issues are getting worse.  That said, I am glad it's handled, for now.  I will continue to monitor it!

Sincerely,
