    virtually all '' new things '' when they are come into attention of bhw members escalate into flood like new threads . For example few months ago , hundreds of threads about xrumer , then with other programs , now hundreds of threads with same questions same things about paypal ... can't be keep that forum at least decent for readers ? why it's really needed to open hundreds of threads about same crap ?

    add captcha to making a new thread and then less ppl will probably do it

    to be honest ... I don't think a captcha will stop those peoples to open new threads at least not type of ones who open such threads damn it ... I think best way for cleaning this mess is one of the mods to have a list with them and to merge them together ... at least if they are enough dumb to open numerous similar threads they can't miss one :) . Maybe a coder to make a small addon a button similar with reputation one / report button ... and peoples who actually read similar threads to bring them into attention of mods who can merge them ...

    maybe you could integrate something like what digg uses.

    you get a list of simmilar pages before every new submission so you can see if there is a duplicate of your story.

    maybe if something like that is integrated you don`t get so manny duplicate threats.

    but that probably eats up server resourses. but it could be a solution
