Wonder what brought that on..  :confused:


Now might be the time to clean away all those zero-post accounts, most of them registered by bots. Out of the >11000 members, only about 640 have ever posted. A cleanup would (imo) increase the efficiency and speed of the forum software.

Miskie messaged me, apparently neosource is getting overloaded with spam accounts and getting the server flagged for spam.
I've gone through and removed 95% of the accounts on NeoSource. That puts us down to approximately 650 accounts down from almost 12,000.
I went through and removed the ones that remained that had spam web addresses.

And now they're back open. Let's see how well the new anti-spam packages work.

That's much better :)

* Robert casts very suspicious eye at those zero-posters left with ICQ accounts and logins of firstname and a few letters, having seen the same useless accounts on other forums.
