Member count will be going down
« on: August 30, 2015, 08:40:11 PM »

I finally decided to take a look at the members that have signed up here in the past.  For some reason, plenty of spammers have signed up lately.  They will be gone just like a baseball at the end of Edwin Encarnacion's bat.

A lot of these spammers have .ru (Russian) emails.  Makes it a lot easier to ban and delete these accounts.

Seem to have had a lot of spammers registering and posting lately. Maybe it's worth considering closing new memberships?

If that option exists, I will gladly use it.  I am so sick and tired of deleting these Russian spam accounts.

Canada has and always will kick your ass in ice hockey, Russians.  Deal with it.

I have found the setting to disable registrations.  I will see if this works for the next dew days.
