Curious about super spam filter

(1/1)

Gyarados:
Hello,
I'm just curious about the gazillion anti-spam questions when replying to posts, do they eventually go away (after 5 post or something)?
The captcha images are almost too obscure to read!
Also as this is my second post today, but with no spam questions, would I be right in assuming that I only need to answer them once every day?
Is it possible to make the questions less biased to Americans?
I was asked how many states there are in the US and I had to look it up (i don't live in the US)

Is there a reason behind this or is the Administrator just hoping to bring about the robot apocolipse :

Captchas and questions go away after You make few posts, so You can worry about it no more  ;D

You learned  something new and that is not something to complain about  :P

I guess that's a good way of looking at it, "useless" knowledge is never useless.
Maybe one day i'll have to open a door that asks riddles about America.
 
A child is born in Boston, Massachusetts to parents who were both born in Boston, Massachusetts. The child is not a United States citizen. How is this possible?

Admin:
You only have to deal with the annoying anti-spammer stuff for your first ~2 posts.

Before I implemented the crazy defenses, about 3 spammers got in per day. Believe it or not, spammers still get through all these defenses. But only ~1 per month manages to reach the final step of posting a bad link these days.

lol . . . I was aiming for easy questions that could be easily looked up, but required some minimal level of intelligence to do so :P

I have a Thai friend who insisted it was 53, and that I should be ashamed of myself that as an American I did not know that. :-X
