Because of the incredible influx of scumbag spammers here, I'm trying something new. All new users will be "Newbies" and posts will need to be approved before they appear on the BB.

This is a test to see if this eliminates or decreases the amount of bogus accounts and spam we get here.

If new users experience a problem with this new setting, please let us know here.

If you're a spammer trying to post bullshit here, don't bother: it gets deleted and you get banned anyway.

Gotta check the settings again!



I studied Italian for 2 semesters. Not once was a "C" pronounced as a "G", and never was a trailing "I" ignored! And I'm from Jersey! tongue lol

That's a good idea. Spammers are annoying as hell.

This is not so unusual, and in the long run may turn out to be a good thing.

One discussion group that I am a member of requires that newbies be subject to strict moderation and post approval for the first month.

Another forum recently had to drastically change the rules regarding new memberships due to some rather serious (non-spam) issues: New members now cannot simply sign up as before - you have to send a personal e-mail to the chief Board administrator explaining why you want to join. If you are legitimate, your membership is approved.

Spammers should be shot. That is, after they are castrated. mad

"No. Saints and poets, maybe... they do some."
