I'm not panicking. I know where my towel is.

I thought that was just a new forum whack-a-mole game...

You'd think if it were supposed to be a game for all of us, BobbyK would've handed out the mallets first...


Spammer intrusions do seem to be down to onesie-twosies, so that's improved. BobbyK, you're doing a bang-up damn job. Many, many thanks.

In the 30 hours since I switched it back to "Admin Approval Required", there's been 36 new user signups. I'm gonna bet that it'll be 36 spammers, but I have to look at each of the bastards.

Yup. Every single one was a spammer.

I knew I hadn't been hammering as many of them. Checking the logs I see the last one I did was yesterday morning around 0700 ET.

Bobby, should I be seeing some sort of notification of new users to review? If so, I'm not.

I don't mind pitching in to whack spammers (better than here in the forums) if I have access.

And again many thanks for your work.
