To enter this forum I have to have a name and password. So assume it’s the same for these spammers. That means they apply to join the club . What acceptance is required to join. In the slidemeister chromatic forum the owner holds up the ability to post until he gets a posting related to our subject. Can we hold over new applicants until they show they are genuine?

Like you, Dezzy, I'd sooner vet prospective members, maybe say first five posts, than have to delete annoying spam, (but we'd need a way to count their posts).

It would also be good not to have them cluttering up the member database, but only James is likely to have the power to get rid of them.

Thanks guys for all your work. I can't help but notice this is the only site I go to with such a problem of spammers infiltrating so much.
It does seem reminiscent of how the 1st version of this site met it's demise.
I signed up just as the old site was dying so never did see it in it's glory days, just the corrupted version, which eventually had to be terminated.
