I have noticed, when I visit this forum, that under the new members section at the bottom, there are strange, odd names of people that have supposedly joined but Ihave never ever see their names on the forum. Is this spam? Just wondering...

You are right it is strange. I've just looked in the list of members at the most recent 100 or so names and non of them seem to have posted or have a profile. I also looked at some of the oldest members pages and although there are some who have not used the forum at all they are mixed up with others who do. Is this the latest craze to just add a silly name to groups on the web? :silly: :silly:

They are spammers and hackers. I have to have the registration process really locked down to stop them, their accounts never get activated so they can't 'get in'. Every so often I clear out all the accounts.
All that security makes it difficult for legitimate people to sign up and log in!

Thanks for clearing that up Rob. Not knowing anything about spammers and hackers it makes e wonder why they waste time doing it!

Thanks Rob
Isn't it a pity that these people haven't got anything better to do with their time.

Have to agree that it is all a lot quiter than a few years back. I look in frequently but must admit that I don't log in and post as often as I used to. I guess that it is old age and getting lazy!!! (or perhaps the rascals are calming down and behaving better - touch wood!!!!!) :laugh:

I think there was a lot of contentious stuff posted a few years ago, it seemed people were not allowed an opinion so some of the more active members just left....shame really :(
