Not exactly sure if this is in the right category so apologies ahead of time if not. What I'm curious about is will a secure server prevent forms from being filled out by bots? I once put up a site forum and it sat unused for a while and when I decided to put the finals on setting it up there were thousands of registrations that had taken place(not by people)and spammed it up. Even with captcha this all took place. If I ran the forum via an https location would this be of any avail for preventing such incidents?
