Change in registration procedure
« on: February 28, 2017, 12:36:22 AM »

Hey Everyone,

For the last 3 days the forum has been under attack by a pornographer apparently based in Russia.  He has created 20 accounts over the last 3 days and used them to try and post pornography on the forum.  In many of the cases I have been able to delete his accounts and ban the email and ip addresses used to create them before he could post but in some cases he has posted some of his material which I have promptly removed.

Since he seems intent on making himself a continuing pain in the backside, I have changed the new account registration process so that each new user will require approval from either Bob or myself before their accounts become active.  I apologize for the inconvenience but it is important to keep this forum the pleasant and family oriented place that we all enjoy.  Once he tires of this we can return the new account process to email verification.
