    Do you mean a CAPTCHA code for registering a new account?

    I think we have that.

    But honestly how many bots do you see posting ads here. All it is, is poeple linking to there money making scheme's as i will call them. And a CAPTCHA will not stop that, it's people they can see the same as us (for the most part).

    I think the cons outweigh the pros here. Yes, it might cut down the spam, but if the spammers are determined enough to keep posting, it will only harm the normal users.
