    :werd: I did this to a forum of mine that was getting at least 100 spammers singing up each day. I threw in a math problem and the spammers went away.

    Code:
    $math = $_POST['math'];
    if($math != 4){
     Redirect back to registration page.
    }
    
    Edit: the form input will need to be called math
