We have suddenly become popular with spammers
« on: November 16, 2012, 12:01:09 pm »
It seems our forum has suddenly become popular with the world's spammers, particularly those from Ukraine, Poland, Russia and Romania. There were 13 registration requests overnight and this morning several more have come in. We check every new registration against a list of known spammers and then check whether the new member is local and genuine. This takes time. So if you have tried to register and we haven't got round to approving your registration, please bear with us. I have six more the check since starting to write this message.
