Question pre-logging on.

The pre-logging on question to prevent automated logons doesn't seem to be very good. The same question has been asked the last 4 or 5 times I've logged on!!

That is not expected. It is based on a cookie. A cookied will be set if you answer the question correctly once. As long as the cookie is present, you won't be asked again. Did you clean your cache and cookies from time to time?

We have to do this to minimize the amount of spam on this board. We tried different ways but this seems the most effective so far. There are a lot of Robot scripts who can easily get around those CAPTCHA images. A simple customized question is more effective in beating those boats.

Yes I regularly clean the cache and cookies as part of my backup routine. If that's the reason then that's OK, I can live with that. Thanks.
