There should be some type of plug-in for that type of stuff. Heck if wordpress can have it, vbulletin can ..

I admin a couple forums and had a spammer show up advertising a software that can get around captcha, just a heads-up. They've really been picking up lately, seeding a lot of usernames. Probably going to be another big wave of spam hit like it did last year.

Well we have Recaptcha to sort the simplest bots out, but we have other systems in place to monitor a users first few posts.

Sadly the frontpage isn't part of that system, but is being replaced soon enough with something far superior.
