Ehm, you do know security questions won't work take that from a person who has written game bots to spam bots for fun.

It depends on what the questions and answers are. Mathematical questions (What is 1+1?) are usually a bad idea, but niche specific questions (How many seasons of Dexter were made?) can help prevent spam quite well.

If you know a little PHP you could also modify the script to serve an image instead of the plain text question. I've found that works well for all bots.
No longer involved in the MyBB project.
