Has this got anything to do with your change to registration or is BS Spam ? I received the email with the included details ~

Changed settings for registration so any new members have to be approved by Admin.
Hopefully it will slow the spammers down as they have to be approved first before they can post

Oh ~ I agree, John..

But in this instance I am a little dubious at the bloke's email address looks like Chinese to me.. I tend to err on the side of caution as he will be a Spammer ??

(Okay~ I know for a fact that the Chinese bike scene is booming as the Chinese government has only recently increased the legal capacity of road bikes ~ previously they were not allowed to exceed 250cc !)

I used the link in admin to find out what the associuation his e-mail has, it linked to eastern block countries and China so I nailed his registration.
