Security Question

Security questions are a method of stopping spammers that has recently become popular. By forcing the user to answer a unique, simple question when they join your topsites, spambots are prevented from registering.

However, security questions have several drawbacks.

  • What if the question is too hard for some users?
  • What if some users cannot answer simple questions because they do not speak your language well?
  • What if your question can somehow be parsed and read by spambots?

Be careful to keep these concerns in mind when selecting your security question.
