    Hey Steve, is this something that will be easier to stop with new software?

    With new software we would moderate the first post before they are approved members

    Just nuked Trevorarino. Our able bodied Admin is working on a more permanent solution so that poor overworked me can take a break and not have to manually nuke these guys..

    Believe it or not only people with Canadian IP address are allowed to register and these suckers get past all the "Click 3 traffic lights" capatchas and the IP bans ... Its a cat and mouse game that sucks.. I am not sure how they are sending PMs though i thought you had to have 10 forum posts before you can PM.. Ill double check that setting.

    Just FYI I get about 15 emails a day for new users signing up from Turkey or China or India only the Canadians get through
