That'll stop 'em dead, thanks.

Will you check for new, genuine registrations though so we don't miss the genuine users?

hopefully it will generate a notice which will let admin know when to check a new user, they can still post as a guest until we clear them, but it will be hard work if they are trying to spam the board, and we can watch them once we except them to see if they are really genuine members and not spammers.

Did you give any thought to allowing GNC admin rights?

OK.

I don't have a problem with that, do you want to arrange?

just deleted a pile of registered users mostly Russian
translation from their profiles
"sberemennymi porn, porn knock hymen, porn sbolshimi tits, porn collection Konchin ", probably all the same person, there will be more in there I am sure.

Also this anon guy who keeps reporting good posts, is he or she using it as a way of probing the board to see if the Mods and Admin are on the ball before a spam attack, maybe its time to stop visitors from posting untill they are registered.

Doc.

We should be coping once we have found out why this AH can get passed our reg proccess to spam us.
Maybe the techie could have a look to make sure we have not been hacked and this AH has a back door in the website some where?
