Evidently they must have had a good weekend. I would say the weather must have been bad, but I doubt that they venture outside much anyway.
Keep up the good work. Glad they don't get far enough for us to see.

Re: Spam, spam, spam...

With that many spammers,it must be a difficult job to find the legit applicants and allow them through. I now understand why some email accounts are not allowed.

Thank you, to the Mods that keep us insulated from all the spam.

Haha, true! But seriously, all of the spam activity, from account creation to the (attempted) creation of new topics and posts, is 100% automated. And most of it originates from IP addresses in China.
