Spambot counterattack

Hi,
we just started to work recently on the forum. Unfortunately, we got a lot of spambots already before we managed to improve the security settings.
It is almost impossible to identify those spambots and some of them are sleepers getting activated years later.

Thus, we want you to post something to identify you as a human being.
Please just add a post to this topic. A simple "Hello World" would be sufficient.

In about a month we will delete all user accounts who do not have shown any activity.
We want to apologize for this inconvenience and hope we do not get to many false positive results aka delete real user accounts.

Thanks

Well I am not a bot, but I may spam, flame and troll.
Obiously I don't think I do, but I can not guarantee everybody else agrees with that :-)
