Today for the first time since the recent software upgrades, a Russian spambot attempted to create an account. No doubt so it could post a dissertation on the value of pornography in religious debates.

New users attempting to create an account are now shown a graphic image, mind you it is not very graphic, that contains a series of letters or numbers. In order to proceed with the registration, a would be user must type the characters shown into a form.

In the error log today I saw the message "The letters you typed did not match the graphic displayed". There was an IP address associated with the message. It is assigned to a Russian address. No new spambot account was created.

Here are the details of the IP address used in this attempted Spambot attack:
