Okay, I'm sorry for replying to this, but I have to ask. Why the hell is all the spam on this forum intent on selling me home improvement supplies in Northern England? Is that where the server is located? Did Tailsteak fuck up his Google optimization in a really interesting way?

Maybe it's all the 'u's in 'colour'.

I really don't know. I've taken to just deleting the users and all their posts immediately when I see them. I suppose I might swap to a different captcha, but based on past experience, I know that'll take hours.

I'm tempted to wordfilter out "kitchen", but people might use that word legitimately....

Given your next comic arc is about Jamie and Gina cooking, I'd say there's a pretty decent chance of that, Tailsteak.

The spam's a little annoying, but it's probably more of a bother to you than to us, so if it's a hassle to filter it, my vote (at least) is to just keep doing as you've been doing. It's not hard to ignore for a few hours before you come along and clean up.

There was a new one on the main-page today; reminded me of this thread.
I'm guessing that (assuming a computer hasn't broken the captcha yet) it's probably coming from someone with a limited knowledge of English who sees the title of the page, and all the references to cooking, being a chef, food, recipes, etc, and decided to spam the forum based on that.

If Tailsteak is still looking for suggestions, maybe one of those Captcha that asks you to answer a question correctly or solves a math problem might be more effective.
