Default New registration audits...

Since around mid March or so, we've been getting a LOT of spammers registering on this site. Matter of fact the number of spammers hitting this site is MANY times the number I have hitting ALL of my other sites combined.

So that normally means someone who is pissed at me or this site has engaged in an effort to try to aggravate me, possibly to the point that I terminate this site in frustration. Been there before with some of my other sites, and it didn't work then either.

But in any event, I have had to set up the registration process whereby I have to approve all new registrations before the new members can post on this site. I am sorry about the complication for those new *legitimate* members, but this seems to be the most effective method to keep this problem from infusing this site with spam messages. Chris has been keeping on top of it, but it is a time waster for him that I would rather not have him have to deal with constantly.

Rich, it's also a waste when you open a post expecting one thing and finding SPAM instead!
By all means, do whatever it takes to put these guys out of business.

You really can't put them out of business, because most are located overseas, but I CAN stop them from infesting my sites with their garbage.

Yeah, but the percentage of spammers compared to actual real registrations here at THIS site is pretty unusual, to say the least.

What is so unusual is that this is such a low profile site that it REALLY shouldn't be a target for any spammers....
