Hello Andreas,

the LibreOffice extensions- and templates site experienced a lot of spam
the last two weeks. There were about 100 to 200 new entries per day in
our ticket system which we get via the forms for an account request.
Because it was an exhausting situation to handle all this new tickets I
decided that the sites need a new technique to fight the spam. I got
some good hints from the Plone community and started working on a new
form. I used another add-on with a field that presents questions to the
user and looks for the right answer. I added also a hidden field to the
form that had to be blank (robots tend to fill that hidden field).

The new forms are in place now and working fine. I hope that will make
our life a bit easier ;-)

thanks a lot for all your work! I know you do a very big chunk of that late at night and without making a big fuss out of it, but the tasks you do are extremely important and valueable to the community.

Thank you very much - and enjoy your weekend! :)
