It is just a way of making sure your friend is not a spambot. We had to increase the amount of security required to register a new account after we had a huge wave of accounts auto-generated for advertising purposes. Unfortunately it has become a necessary precaution.

Hey, I just logged out and had a look (they weren't there when I joined) and it looks like only one question, which doesn't appear to hard.

I assume its to do with bot and spam avoidance - its not a huge test, the one I got was 100-60, which isn't hard.

Of course, any problems you can drop me a PM, and I'm sure FT or TO will have a look over here.

Cheers,

Edit:

Beaten to the post!

As others have said, it's just a necessary protection against spam bots.

Plus it only takes 5 seconds to work out something like 14 + 4 -2....
