    I quite often look at what people are doing on Acorn under who's online and sometimes see about 2 guests registering but tonight it seems like most are registering at the same time, are we about to get mega spammed or what :confused:

    To any genuine guests becoming new members then Hi :cool:

    New members get held in a moderation queue, I vet every single one of them.

    When you see a lot active at once it's probably me catching up on approving them so their confirmation emails all go out in batches.

    This along with my automated anti-spam tools keeps spam off here a lot, compared to most forums I have seen.
