I'm...... depressed! Just think, with all the potentially wonderful things you can learn, do and explore with a computer and the internet, it is used to generate....trash.

It can't be good for health of the backend database. Hopefully there are backups for when (not if) the thousands of bogus accounts crash everything.

Steve could ban new registrations from Chinese IP addresses. I just took a sample of today's new spammer accounts, and they are 100% from China.

How about it Steve?

I see two very suspicious looking user names in that group. Using my powerful deduction skills, I think those are the spam members... the rest are obviuosly legitimate members!

Re: Spam, spam, spam...

Sorted member list by Number of posts, just for fun. Okay, I'm bored and lazy today.

Out of 245 pages....
page 1 - page 192 had users with 0 posts
page 192 - page 207 had users with 1 post

There are lots of old "members" that never posted or posted only once or twice. Granted some of the "0" and other low posts are legitimate but it does give a skewed idea as to how many members there are. Or rather how many active members. But I guess it really doesn't matter. Kinda interesting about the "real" people who join and never post or only post once or twice and never show up again. Do they join and read/post only to become intimidated by converting a bus or do other things (like a place to park it, funds to convert, time to invest, lack of skills, lack of support from friends & family) persuade them to abandon the idea.

I rarely look at he members list. Only looked once or twice while trying to locate another skoolie near our location. The lack of realistic location info is irritating. I'm guilty of that myself, but just added my current location.

RAR! Hear my spam!

on to a more serious note, I looked at a forum today that made me fill out a captcha, then answer two questions: what is the first word: tree, shark, banana, formula
What is the last word: television, kitten, polar, candle.

This was only to use the forum search as a non member. Seems like a hassle, but really wasn't. Also to even sign up for freecycle Ihad to do something similar as well as include a short blurb (maybe max out at xxx characters?).

Would adding questions and a blurb about why one wants to be a member reduce some spam? Seems like folks who sign up here really do have a reason and shouldn't be bothered too much by a little extra security.
