On Quatloos we use ZBBlock, the SFS plugin, and Google's reCaptcha 2. It cut back a lot on Russian spammers and other unsavory types.

Thanks, webhick, I'll look into those for phpBB. Welcome to our little raucous playpen!

For today, the question is "Boiling point of water in Fahrenheit?" We'll have to see if it's a good one.

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?
Of course I would. I love sarcasm.

But now you've hurt my fee-fees. :crying:

Tricky. As far as I know there is no boiling point for ice, only a melting point. Water has 3 states: solid, fluid, gas. Solid to fluid = melting ; fluid to gas = boiling.

Ice can skip the melting and will sometimes evaporate without getting fluid : in the winter the frozen clothes on the clothesline can dry out while staying frozen.

In the 24 hours before I changed the question, more than 30 bots registered to join. Since I changed the question, 0. I call that a winner, for now.

Does water boil at a different temperature at high altitude, or does it just take longer to get it up to 212°? :confused:

Foogie: Ask how many meters above sea level the ocean is.

That, too, will eliminate all bots and birfers.

So at 3000 m you have to adjust the boiling time for your eggs, pasta etc.
