Re: hammered by newly registered members

Shwpz, I am not sure what you are stating. Could you please tell: When setting registration to Admin approval, did it stop activation of registered spambots?

Re: hammered by newly registered members

Try asking what celestial object is in your logo. I thought it was enough to avoid dictionary words. ...

Out of the 14 years or so I've been using that screen name, you must be the 3rd that actually manages to spell it. :P I tip my virtual hat off to you, g...
