Yeah, but a good question will defeat the script for months, as I just demonstrated. I'll work on a new one. Most of the new members have email addresses ending in @mail.ru, @yandex.com, or @outlook.com.

More than 175 Russian bots registered on Fogbow in the past week. I performed a mass extermination this morning. I thought I had a clever question that a bot couldn't answer - Name a bird with all black feathers. (you could answer crow, raven, or blackbird)
A rooster that fell in a tar pit.

Can you tar and feather a bird?

No fake questions, peeps. :fingerwag:

Suppose I had asked YOU which rancher was gonna save this great land of ours. Would you have really wanted to say Cliven Bundy? Or that the 2A was all about "guns, guns, guns"? :nope:

No, it has to be a legit question that anyone with a legitimate interest in joining Fogbow would know, but most Russians would not have a clue. The one about black birds was a winner, and it worked for more than 3 months.

Thanks, but I don't need help with this. I'll come up with something good. This is why y'all contribute using the Donate button above. I deal with these problems so you don't have to. :blink:

Yeah, I only deleted inactive members, which means people who didn't click on the link in the confirmation email you got. Bots have trouble clicking on links.

I still have to approve posts by new members, but I can shortcut the process. Welcome to our little raucous playpen, Wanderinglord!

Better - in what state was the 44th President born? That will keep out the Russian bots and birfers.

Charge them a nickel to join. I'm thinking the hackers will refuse to pay, but if I'm wrong, you'll get one heck of a lot of nickels!

Her nickname. :sterngard: uses an extremely uncommon term for her. However, it is apparent that that is not quite universal common knowledge among potential Fogbowsers.

Pity. Fun word.

Yeah? And what, pray tell, is the answer people should supply to this important question in order to register for Fogbow? :talktothehand:

When Fitzfundfilcher was in jail, stacked like cordwood, did a woodchuck chuck him? :confused:
