Regarding spammers on the site lately...

I have turned on the option to moderate all new users to the site before they are allowed to post. This means that I get an email every time someone registers on the site, and I have to approve their account before they can post.

This should really help cut down the spambots. Most of the spambots have very easily identifiable email address like "" or "". You can pretty much tell which accounts are bad news just by looking at their name and/or email accounts.

The other indicator is that the spambots never change their timezone - so all spambots use the GMT+12 timezone.

Either way, this should help. Hopefully we won't have to log on to our site and see porno pics or links to viagra anymore.

    I have to credit forum member Jokerz4fun for the smiley - he found it and suggested it :)

    This is such a lovely site...I just assumed it was naturally peaceful every time I visited.

    Thanks for doing all the tough stuff behind the scenes while I was sleeping. :)
