On the new forum I have added two criteria for new users registering,
Answer a yes no question
Answer a question, which has a defined answer i.e. Out of 12345 which is the middle number
This should stop the automated bots and scripts automatically registering.
I also note that there are literally thousands of users who have never posted or revisited the site (inactive users), I propose deleting these to clean the system up, and all users with usernames beginning with # as this seems entirely automated as well.
Any comments feel free… as always
