    I was recently responding to a PM, and had forgotten my password, as I'm not a frequent poster here. I was required to answer the question, "Name a brand of cable used by many professionals that starts with the letter M. I guess spambots can't handle that. So- I answered "Mogami". I just want to know- if I had answered "Monster", would they deactivate my account and send me a nastygram telling me to get with the program?-Richie

    Glad to see you back, Richard!
    no, you would have had to keep answering the questions until you got it right/ and you got the question right!

    Note: You won't be asked to answer the spam filter question again unless you are away for a year.
    Also, the questions change when the spam bots figure them out. Sometimes they get it in a few days. Crazy world.

    HAHHAHAHHAA! Yes, and they would have also sent you to a 12-step boot camp for cable madness. -Bruce
