    That captcha to reset your password is a disgrace . All day I've been trying to crack the code.
    Why does it read last 1st and 7th.?
    I kept writing "area" "copy" "from"!!!!!!!

    The last. 1st and 7th words!

    POINT 1 - 1st and 7th are not words. They are numerals. The questin is ambiguous... i started not counting the "NUMERALS" thinking you were clever!
    There is no other way to contact anyone on this site without the uae of the captcha... making a question about it very difficult to ask!

    Point - 2 . I understand they are used to prevent spam email/ accounts. But i am a real person and i very nearly gave up!
    Please quote the captcha somewhere on a sticky post so real people can search it and access their accounts..
    Please

    Made it so hard so swarmy spammers would stop leaving girly porn type links. I have changed it to one word and the 7th is now spelled out to make it a real word since you didn't think 7th was a word. But, if those spammers show up again, I'll change it to something harder again.

    Thank you..
    I can imagine how annoying spam posts and accounts are to delete. I've seen a lot of unrelated posts on different forums but not porn.
    At least you know it was making it hard for the spammers! Sorry, i just get frustrated when security measures make it difficult to do honest things.

    Keep up the great work. This looks like such a great forum i really wanted to be a part of it!
    Thanks
