    This is more than a little frustrating. The "Random question's" answer is "Shure", but the system won't accept it. Why?

    If you are using this question as a "Captcha" type of spam-prevention, please consider changing it to allow a sequence of questions. Thus, when a glitch occurs, as is the case today, prospective members would have an opportunity for a second attempt, as is allowed with the other types of spam-prevention methods.

    Secondly, please do NOT use the *same* "Random question" for anyone attempting to contact you directly? Having the same "Random Question" in this context is EXTREMELY frustrating.

    The captcha could be as simple as asking "What is 12 + 15", or "What color is the sky?".

    Your system is broken, but there's no way to tell you!

    Fortunately, I happened to come across this "Guest" option.

    Sorry to hear you are having trouble, you have made some really excellent suggestions that I will set-up asap.

    The random question however needs to be music related . Why? If I used what is 12 + 15 we would be hit with spam bots within minutes and the site would be overrun with not music related crap by the hundreds a day. We rarely have trouble with how its setup. If you are having trouble, clearing your cache may help or it could also be you are using an older browser which are not being coded for vb4 forums anymore.

    That all being said, great suggestions ! I'll get on that right away.

    Thanks and stand by....

    BTW, the answer to the question is not Shure, it is microphone and this could change in a week so if you are reading this at a later date, we update our questions all the time because the bots figure it out.:)
