Where are all these spammers coming from George?
Promotion... not many a kid gets past my dock without being thrown in the right seat!
The problem is the spammers are using 'bots to generate bogus registrations in an effort to generate back links to their own sites (or something like) - it evidently improves their Google ratings. I haven't come across anything malicious, but they are a royal pain in the butt - spend maybe 20 minutes a day going through the list. That's why I ask people to email me first - bots can't do that. I have put what security measures I know on the site, but they've figured a way around them. I do have it set that I have to approve the membership before they can post, and I can and do intercept most of them. If there are any that I miss, let me know and I'll deep-six the offending "member".
I get some from Russia and Poland...
