Topic: Spambots

I noticed that over time we had a lot of members join and not post. When I did some digging, I realised that about half of our membership was spambots.

Over the last few weeks I've been weeding these bogus memberships out. They mostly used Russian email addresses and usernames that are well-documented on t'Internet as belonging to spambots. Where I wasn't sure I've erred on the side of caution and kept the profile.

Therefore, everyone who is left should, in theory, be a real person. Hurrah!

Anyone who's joined and not posted yet please feel free to do so, even if it's just to say hi. We don't bite, and it'll help my efforts to keep the board spam-free.

EDIT: There's an intro thread here but it's not mandatory to post there first.
