The script is configurable to display different questions and answers.
You can even set multiple and a random one will be picked.

Till now no bot was programmed to bypass the forum or wiki
registration, even though both are a way more viable target than the
AUR. Therefor I would suggest to just try it; the code is already
written. We can gradually extend it later if needed. It's actually
important to not go with the best solution we can come up with right
from the start.
