I google most new users and ifin i see that they just joined a gazilion forums - i ban em, have been doin it for quite a while. Also - any random posts that they do I delete em and physically remove em, no need for all to see their stupidity.

Well, most days i come into the forum and ban a coupla new users, spammers,usually catch em before they post - sometimes they are faster than I.

when that happens - i just ban em and delete the thread.

Hate to make the registration take longer as when a newbie finally gets up the nerve to join - they have a burning question that they need to ask and if i make it so someone must approve them - they will probably die from the wait

Dust,
I agree with you, if somepne has actually registered then they most likely are ready with an important question. I didn't realize they had to register to post. You guys are doing a great job with this forum. THANKS! Andy

Well honestly - we do near nothing

in order to post they must register, and return an email with funny characters in it to activate membership

i think i may have just banned a new member that had a name that looked like a spammer, WebCamMannn

i emailed him and am waiting for a reply, if i did i apologize and will correct the error in my ways, unban

I DON"T LIKE ANYBODY DELETING MY POSTS!

However, letting someone delete their own post is fine.

(Closing a thread would have been much simpler.)

That's nothing. You should see the ones Randi hits delete on before she can post them.

hrm, other people do that too ? It's good to let off steam sometimes, then once I have typed it, leave it there previewed for 20mins or so, then delete it - never posted. Admins can see these ?

They can see everything being typed in.

Guess you could play games with that...

Default Homeint - F16 site

We've been getting a lot of spam users who join and post one link. This morning we had 2. One of these was "homeint" with an uncommented link to some f16 dot biz site. The site looks as though it might be aviation related, but nothing to do with canards. With no introduction or discussion I decided this was another spoof and deleted the thread, banned the user.

I see that the user is still on line. If this user feels that he/she was unjustly treated - please write to admin and we'll discuss it.
