What The... 35 Guests? C'mon Folks, Join Up
« on: June 13, 2012, 12:21:58 AM »
It's 12:15 AM, and I just looked at stats. There are 35 guests and me.
That's a lot of guests.

Why not just join...you know you want to!

It's easy, and it's free.

Definitely spambots who are trying to register and post.  I ran a small web forum for a while and we got inundated with "buy_WOW_gold!" type screen names registering at all hours of the night and posting 100 threads before I woke up.

I get it, now. I often see "guests" who are registering for accounts that never show up as members.
Must be bots that can't get past the controls.

System seems to work. Thanks, Creek.
