Stupid spambots

I really shouldn't have wasted the hour it took to do this, but I've been getting sick of seeing all these spambots register.

Now when new users register, you have to fill out two image verification things. One of them is something I put together for my blog and so I doubt spammers would see the point of coding up a OCR program for it. The market is just too small.

Hopefully this takes care of the 2-3 spambots that have been registering per day.

By the way, if you register with a mail.ru email address, and have a homepage with an even remotely looking sketchy URL, your account will likely be suddenly deleted without warning.
