« on: July 27, 2005, 07:10:12 PM »
Due to a recent rash of bogus registrations I have been forced to require an email verification for new users. Those that know me understand that I wait until I am forced into these kind of decisions. I have finally realized I cannot continue and keep deleting these accounts as it is an extreme waste of my time.

So while it might not be a huge deal, I find it rather extreme and annoying that I have to do it. I apologize in advance to those that find it excessive but I don't see any other way at this point.

At least some of the new members are fairly good.

But you can still post as a barbarian?

Well the barbarians are still here and they have not been too much of a problem.  Of course that just means you keep having to wait for the next technological leap which allows them to spam, then make your adjustment to your code to stop them... and so on.

Step by step.

All I am doing is preventing abuse at the most minimal level possible. Until it becomes a problem, I will leave it alone.

The registrations are automated and created just to have links to their spam sites for search engine ratings, so I read. Even though viewing the members list is registered only, since I allowed easy registering the script just runs.

Oh well, see what happens next I suppose.
