Forum Registrations
« on: February 15, 2011, 08:07:19 AM »
I've been getting bombarded with forum spam registrations every day to the point that I had to disable automatic registration a few months ago.  It's still happening to the point that I have to reject every request to join the forum, which means I might end up blocking a legitimate fan of the program.  If that's happened to you, I sincerely apologize.  If you happen to know someone who's already a member here, ask them to send me a PM and I'll manually add you.  I'm still trying to find a way to stop the spam registrations, since I'm sure no one wants to see the forum filled with posts for Viagra, Cialis, etc. every day.  As a stopgap, I'm going to turn off all registrations for the forum to see if that will chase the spammers away when they realize they can't even try to get in.

Appreciate your efforts. Isn't great how idiots/marketers can spoil something good?
