Spamalot: New registrations off for now

Postby Merlin » Tue Nov 14, 2006 12:08 pm

I've disabled new registrations on the board until we can get a handle on the spam problem. Sorry for the inconvenience, potential new folks, and apologies to the existing member for the annoyance.

We'll see what we can do to get things under control, then open things back up when we can.

I've just set a thing whereby people can activate their own accounts when they register, simply by supplying a valid email.

This is EXPERIMENTAL and based on the fact that I'm tired of wading through 200-odd emails a month to approve two or three real-looking people amid a sea of Russia cam girls and pharmaceutical merchants.

If we're inundated with a wave of spam posts, I'll be sealing that hole up again. If not, well, tell your friends.

Wow. That was a lot of porn. At least the young ladies looked happy and well fed.

Let me see if there's some other way.
