A buddy from work registered yesterday as Slabety, however he is still waiting on an approval to become a member, any chance someone can take a look at this?  I didn't even realize we had this step now.

Your friend has been approved.  I put this step in place to halt the influx of spammers.  We get several hundred registration attempts a week and I shoot down probably half of them as spammers.  I'm actually out at a business conference this week so I had a bit of an approval backlog.  smile

Why don't you implement CAPTCHA on the sign-up form?

If I had to make a guess, CAPTCHA is easily broken through AFAIK.

Yep, but I suppose it wouldn't hurt to couple that with what I'm doing.  smile

looking up CAPTCHA I think it's easier to read than that other one that gives a 6 character code to enter with a horrible background image.
