    Forum security improved

    I've activated a more strict Forum registration verification step.

    During last few months there have been hundred of bot registering to thinBasic forum regardless some dummy questions needed to be answered in order to register.
    I manually banned many fake users and deleted fake posts.
    That was not enough.

    I've now activated image verification with random text/font/color/size in order to reduce automatic bot registration.
    Image verification is active for registering to thinBasic community forum, changing password and other features.

    Ciao

    Thank you very much, Eros,

    it will help immensely!

    There are still some users who want to go through all this to sell for example medicaments here. Just banned one such user.
    But these are not bots, but paid organized guys I presume.

    Due to HEAVY fake user registration I'm not able to stop, I've disabled user registration for a while.
    Will see.
