Re: Bots attacking :(
Interesting... and I was starting to think my suggestion was useless! I like Plubyblop's suggestions...
So/and I would add to what Plubyblop suggests, what may be an extra kicker for this would-be botstopper...
Use a random generator to insert meaningless random characters into random spaces inbetween groups of words in your query. Instruct the would-be registering user to figure out what the real question is and type/or-select the answer in the space provided.
So you could have a template for the question(s) like word1 randomcharactershere word2 word3 word4 randomcharactershere randomstuffagain word5 word6? Answer=__________
The words and random stuff could be randomly arranged (kind of thing).
Let the bots adapt to that for a couple years and see what they come up with! Meantime, let 'em move on to other more accessible targets!
Does this sound like a good extension to this idea, and easily doable enough?
