If you are talking about the example link thing on the footer thats from a custom mod and you would need to ask in that mod how to hide it in that page

please add in recaptcha/keycaptcha before sending mails to prevent ip being blackholed/blacklisted by remote servers.

Question

I seem to be having issues with this mod NOT forwarding the persons birthdate.

After they register and you go into ACP > Users and look them up, their birthdate is not recorded. Can someone please look into this?

There's already CAPTCHA in registration. Why would you want it twice?

Read the thread. You'll get a ton of bots signing up. Then your server sends out a ton of bad email. Then you get blacklisted. Not good...

OK pardon me for my ignorance, but why would a bot want to register on a forum?

How can you tell if its a bot that registered, verses a person?

I have noticed that almost everyone that has signed up since this has been installed does not have a birth date registered, could those be bots?

How are they getting pass the built-in captcha?

There are millions of spam-bots that go out and look for cataloged registration mechanisms they can exploit and register, same bots can also post posts as well as inject home page links in accounts. The bot senders can send these out much more effeciently that human spammers.

You really cant tell if they are bots, but after awhile you tend to be able to recognise them.

The birthdays dont necessarily mean anything.

The built-in captcha, even recaptcha, is flawed and bots can brute force them or recognise the captcha text to get in.

If you have used vbresults spam blocker, you can see that most bots register in 5 seconds or less. Can you type that fast on the registration form?

I don't care why they want to. They are.

And there is no built in CAPTCHA with this mod. So if I were to install it, I'd be sending out a ton of email that would bounce, which is bad for me.
