You would think in order to keep bots from penetrating forums so easily there would be image verification in the registration form. I am talking about the image with the numbers and letters that you identify in a text box under the image. This would atleast eliminate some of the bots to some degree. I would like to see this become an option for setting your registration compulsaries. Good idea? Why or why not?

Edit : Added the poll

I vote no, and here is why. I tried to register at boards before, where the stupid thing wouldn't show up so all I saw was a little red X and that SUCKS!

Well, that is a good point Isabel. But I've never had that problem before.

EDIT:Thanks for the Poll Metal Knight.

I'm for it, it'd give it a more professional approach to things and it'd really benefit everyone.

i'm for it.
I never had problem with these... I play games on internet that are using such a system ingame to give you soldiers.... And it works well
Maybe, if it's implemented, use one that is suitable for colorblind people. Because i am color blind, and get a little difficulties with some models of images verificators.

Well, I brought the issue of it's absence up because of the fact that some bots are sophisticated enough to post pornographic images and what not. This happened to a friend of mine, not using the same server, but it still worries me to think there may be a bot posting porn on my site while I'm gone.

Good point, for some users image verificoations are buggy(never happened to me) But anyway...

But i think it would be safer with image verification, but in this case i will not vote xD
