Have the spammers broken CAPTHA? After installing CAPTHA a few years ago the spam was kept to a contolable minimum. But within the last week to so I am now getting 20 or more spam posts a day. I am still using V 2.4.3 Is there anything new in V2.4.4 that I should install?

What do the spammers even got out of posting things like, "Incredibly interesting, looking forth to visiting again. "
and, "Thanks for the purpose of supplying like superb content. ", etc.?

The post it's self is rubbish. They are either just trying to boost the websites search engine ranking or just hoping that the more places they have a link the more chance of people visiting.

A quick look at this sites own guestbook shows that the captcha isn't working.

What can be done? Is it finally time for me to switch to Lazarus?

Could try 2.4.4 see if he's added anything. I could probably write a mod for AG to implement my header checks.
