I tried requesting a few different images, and haven't been able to even read all the letters. If it wasn't for the listening, I doubt anyone could join here.
Isn't there a better image generator???

I don't recall the captcha looking like that last time I had to use it. What graphics setup are you using?
Never say never or always. In most cases, there is an exception to anything you can think of that you might use either word in. "Most likely" and "highly improbable" in a lot of those cases would ring true, but not never/always.

It's under the display tab, in the "device" box.  For example, mine says "AMD Radeon HD 6800 series" because my card is an AMD Radeon HD 6870.

Can anything else be done to stop these advertisers or at least get them removed quicker?
Sad thing is they bring more activity here then all of our current members.

Seriously! I just spent 15-30 minutes killing all those bots. Some of them had been banned before, and googlefanboy I couldn't even ban on IP address because it had been done before! D:

15-30 min is way too long. Not saying your slow, saying there needs to be an improved system to block these guys(even after registering), and remove all their posts with a click of a button.
They put link after link, be nice if the forum itself could detect that a user is posting way too many links and stop them from posting after a while.

You complained about the best system I could find, now you complain that it's gone? I can't magic up a new system that's infallible, KoH. And I can't be here 24/7. I'll try finding something less intrusive, but anything we use will have workarounds by the time I install it.

You shouldn't have to be here 24/7

It just seems like you guys have to put a lot of time and effort into cleaning up these forums daily when I'm sure there's some easier way.
I don't know how you admins/mods put up with having to spend so much time cleaning up this mess.
I'm thinking about you guys, and the daily aggravation you must go through.

You're good with PHP and all that fun stuff, aren't you?  Have you considered trying to write a mod that would take care of what you're talking about?

Be very tricky.
First, I haven't looked at any php scripts since I left OZ.
Second, I'd need a site that supports php since I have no way of testing any scripts.
Third, would be a very simple script if I did write one.
