Thanks J.R. - great!

I think I've found out why we've seen this more than usual recently.
When I upgraded to the latest software version it appears to have overwritten the code for the "anti-bot" question when you register.
I've just gone through and reimplemented this, so there's a tailored CH-related question which I'm sure anyone from CH of any generation will be able to answer.

Given that most "bot" registrations are apparantly actually people in developing countries who are paid to break these things, it's not fool-proof, but let's see what happens from now on...
