You may be aware of an increase in spam round here in recent months (if you're not, great, that means we're doing our job well). It's all come from accounts registered for the express purpose of advertising various goods, so we're going to start approving new accounts before posts can be made. Hopefully this will be a temporary measure.
There are four of us, and we're round here pretty regularly, so all being well new accounts should be approved within hours. This post is mainly for the benefit of anyone registering a new account and desperate to join in the feverish discussion.
Quick update on this as it's been in place for over 5 years now. In that time, I've personally banned 100+ membership applications from accounts which appeared to be dubious - thankfully Proboards provides access to stopforumspam.com to check IP addresses and email addresses for previous spamming incidents.
Most recently banned membership application - username 'alexxx' - no previous form, but surely if it's genuine the user could have picked a better/more appropriate username?
Thanks to those who have joined in that period and used the facility to write a short note to the moderators - makes our lives much easier if we can see that new users are genuinely Mogwai fans.
mrsrf: Just in from the barras. Incredible :-)
