#3359 new bug

Can't register for the forum

Description

I am trying to create an account to post on the forum but at the end it asks a question to prevent spambots. However, the question doesn't make any sense and I can't figure out how to properly answer it. The question basically says "what answer to the above question is named after a person". The problem is there is no above question and nothing relating to a person. How can I complete the forum registration?

Yes, it's a stupid question and you're not the first one who is annoyed, and you are in your rights to be that.

Of course the correct answer could also be one of: Buster, Jessie, ..., but the admin has decided that only Linux is the correct answer.

I doubt that there are many spambots visiting the forum, I think it's more about keeping people from registering and reporting issues, because there are many issues in the code and it takes a lot of work to fix them.

No offense to anyone of course, everyone here does his things on his free time without any pay.

Thank you for the help! That was unnecessarily frustrating.
