Restrictions for New User Registrations

I have had to place tighter rules on the new user registrations. This includes new spambot protection measures (answer a riddle), password length, etc. Also, an admin is required to approve your registration before you post to the forum. This is due to the unfortunate malicious script attacks exploiting vulnerability on the phpBB installation (yes I always keep my installation up to date) by hackers masking their real IP and spoofing e-mails.
