Been using the mozillaZine forums off and on for years, but now unable to log in. And when attempting to ask about this thru the Help forum or to re-register, can't get past the security question (How many letters in Mozilla?) - the answer "7" results in "You have provided an invalid answer to the question." (also tried "8" and "seven" and "eight")

Any ideas? Thanks!

Sometime back the captcha changed from random things to asking how many letters are in Mozilla. It may not seem obvious to some but it was about unique letters and not total letters so the answer is 6

The single owner/admin of this long running independent forum hinted he may be changing from phpBB3 to another forum software that will be easier to keep updated and be https:// so fixing this captcha wording is not a priority.

Thanks! Hard to imagine this is obvious to anyone...
