For a while we have been using 'Admin Validation' for users joining the forum. This requires John or I to manually approve registrations. We did this because of the Spam we were getting.

To be honest I was cr@p at the beginning but have recently kept on top of registrations with most getting a response within 12/24 hours.

However I have noticed in the last few months that I have not needed to reject anyone and we have not had any spam.

Therefore I am going to set it back to 'E-mail Validation' which coincides nicely with me being away for 2 weeks (I wonder why?)

Let me know if you notice any spam.

Thanks,

Paul

Hi, Paul,

Not sure about this - maybe you have started accepting "business sponsorship" but I (and Peter & Dawn) have noticed a new member registered as "Erofili Real Estate".

Bunging that name into Ggle, got me this link.

Of course, I could just be my usual paranoid self ............

No we haven't started taking business sponsorship!

The people behind Plakias Real Estate may have a legitimate interest, if they start inundating the forum with adverts then thats a different matter.

We'll see how it goes.

Cheers,

Paul
