    My hosting company just took my website down because the Subscribe2 form does not have a captcha. Is this something that could be added? Thanks in advance for your help!

    @logacydesigns,

    My next version comes with some anti-spam measures but not Captcha. As a user I think the captcha approach is awful and if anything puts off genuine users from signing up to services - I know I have closed browser windows when faced with captcha forms.

    Are you using Bad Behaviour? That should stop a lot of automated requests to your site.

    Speak to your host and ask why they want this added, especially as Subscribe2 uses a double opt-in mechanism.

    I agree with you. I just have Akismet installed. I will give Bad Behaviour a try and see if that keeps them off my back. Thanks for the quick response!!!!
