Indeed. It as been getting worse.
I am in a field, on top of a cliff in Devon, so have limited access.

So, everyone come up with a question that a person could answer, that can not easily be Googled.
Eg.
Not : How many wheels as a trike got
Yes : What is the 6th letter of the site name.

I have also just installed another anti-spam measure - https://akismet.com/how/

I have used this on blog site, for years, and it is very effective.
We will see how it goes on this forum, as it also tries to stop registrations.
