There's a balance we have to strike between so easy we have to spend 50% of our time fighting spammers and too hard where we discourage involvement. I'll review our current procedure with some friends and see if we're not being too restrictive.

It would help if the registration page could be more explicit, eg. "Session Cookies have to be allowed before registration can be successfully submitted." -- either upfront on the form (before submission), or after encountering submission failure.

My browser is set to reject cookies not in my whitelist, so my initial submissions were rejected. I received the following (misleading) error messages, even though the form was fully filled-in & my answer to the anti-spam question is correct.
  • 1st Attempt: "The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again."
  • 2nd Attempt: "The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again. You have provided an invalid answer to the question."

Noted! Will add this info to registration page.

[EDIT] Info has been added to registration page.
