    Seriously, this is really annoying. We need some sort of security question before you join, if that is even possible.

    And then somehow screened by the Mods?

    yeah I just banned a lot. cleaned up all the threads currently, and banned all users logged on that seemed like spammers. and the newest user too. Sorry for being big brother. we really need to set it up so that mods have to approve each new user.

    Thanks Spanishfly and ICM! Looks much better now. Seems to me that setting it up to have mods approve each new user is just a matter of clicking a button in a board settings tab, no?

    You would think so. Awhile back though we were hearing that people were applying and the e-mails were going to Freak and winding up in a spam folder or something like that. It's so involved.

    I can ban three or four spammers, then read a thread or two, and already there are two or three more.
