Thanks to some pretty slick new anti-spam features I've implemented here, I've turned off the "Administrator" approval function for new users. So, new users will be able to activate themselves, just like in the old days, before the spambots. Since implementing this functionality here and on the CBBS last week, I haven't had a single spambot, not one. And I was getting 50 or so a day on both sites.

I'll be changing the registration approval on the CBBS soon, as well.

So, moderators especially, keep an eye out for "human" spammers. They are pretty much extinct, because of the bot automation, but one may sneak in every once in a while.

As always, thanks for the continued support!

Nah, I just wear contacts sometimes. But sitting in front of the box all day, I usually have the four-eyes on.
