When creating a new thread the url ends with "create_thread". How do I change this to something else. Just trying "one more thing" to evade spammers. Kindly help.

A large majority of spammers these days are human.

Changing the route won't achieve anything as they are able to click the [Post New Thread] button like any other member.

I am being hit by xrumer. Automated threads and while they fail to create threads due to spam filters, these spammers then use their success list(some times failed post url lands in that list) and build backlinks to that to get a tiered structure. That's bad for us forums.

I have used xrumer a lot pre 2012 and know this.

Is there a way to change create_thread?
