Security

As some of you will have noticed, we get our fair share of bot spam on these forums (like most forums do).

We're doing what we can to limit this and the forum staff are also pretty quick at dealing with any bots which make it through.

Another potential security issue is access to accounts of registered users.  I'm not aware of anyone having any problems with this but would encourage everyone to ensure that they have a very strong password.  

If your password isn't particularly strong, please change it to one that is.  You can always ask your browser to remember it if you can't.

The browser sometimes "forgets" it so i won't advise using that method to remember your password

Recommend NuCaptcha. Not had any spam bots registering since I installed it on my forum. (Was getting a ridiculous amount before hand.)
