one drawback to this is that I can't just randomly change the forum's theme to something anymore. I only installed notcaptcha to the openarena theme

@Peter, I changed something on our registration page after that bot attack (didn't have ftp earlier). Are there still spambots registering?? (I can't check that myself..)

@fromhell: 'attempted getting past the notcaptcha' or 'got past the notcaptcha'?
