The anti-robot error came up for me a couple of times while I was trying to register. It seems to be case-sensitive and perhaps that should be noted on the registration page or, better yet, it should be made case-insensitive. I twice guessed wrong on a letter's case. "w" is a good example of a letter form that is not obviously upper or lower case. If a robot can detect the letterforms, I don't think case-sensitivity will get in the robot's way.

I'm curious though, are robot signups a big problem for discussion forums? I'd kinda like to hear what they have to say. :mrgreen:

Thanks for letting me know I will update that screen to specify lower case. :)

Yes robots have been a problem in the past, they go out and register and try scouting for email addresses. (And thus making lists to sell to spammers) while the number of robots has been small I would rather keep the bots out and keep you off of spam lists because of the site. :)
