It will soon be a battle of AI against AI.   🙁

We’ve had an ongoing battle with SPAM on U.S. Hawks. We have three levels of defense:

1. We ask one of a few registration questions generally known by hang gliding pilots (along with my phone number for newbies who might not know the answers).

2. All newly registered members can only post in the new members forum (which is set for no searching).

3. Approving of real members requires an actual phone call (in addition to answering the automated question).

But at some point, an AI spoambot will be able to pass all of those tests … including the phone call.   🙁
