Your antispam question is too easy. They can solve simple maths equations and anything you can find with a search engine.

Change it to ask something unique about your site that needs some logic to solve, such as something about your logo, site or location of a word.

The answer can not be google-able which the president of the Philipines is and you have several Q&A questions which makes it even more difficult to determine which one is failing.

Use ONE question. Try something like "What is the first word in the second line in this site's banner?" Answer = "Arena or arena or ARENA"
