For those of you with accounts on ForArgyll.com you’ll find a new field to fill in on the log in page. It’s based on a system called Captcha, and is designed to ensure only humans can log in. We’ve noticed recently that those redoubtable spam-types from China and Russia have been registering in larger numbers than ever. They don’t get any further because the system we have is designed to make everything secure, but frankly, like any bouncer tired of turfing out the same old miscreants on a daily basis, we’ve decided to just block entry to them. This version of Captcha does it, and does it well. It even caters for those who can’t work out what the distorted letters say by allowing audio playback.
If anyone has problems with the new system let us know and we’ll sort it for you one way or another.
