Default New members and spam

In an effort to decrease the amount of spam that we had been receiving on our site. I have closed open registration. Instead I have made it so that every new member has to have it's IP address verified. I have made more work for myself, but I think that this has helped to stop spammers from joining the site and driving us crazy.

For the new members, I do appologize for the wait, I do try to get to registrations every single day, sometimes twice a day.

If you find any spammers that got by me, please let me know.

Thank you,
Nancy

Don't worry Nancy, I'll take care of this guy.

You're doing a good job, I haven't seen nearly as much spam as before.

It's been a problem also for other sites. Some are now closing down at night because of it. Thanks for staying on top of it.

Maybe you could get one of these retired guys here in Michigan ( I won't name names at this time) to give you a hand. I can't vouch for them as they are kind of shady bunch.

Ha, Ken I did not know you were retired as well, I was talking about Tony and Hank.

Am I the only one here in Michigan working? I can't afford to support all of you this year with all the kids college cost so some of you are going to have to pitch in. Please sent checks directly to me or I do take PayPal.

You are right..I'm walking around with holes in my underwear and socks because all the taxes I'm paying and these guys are buying motorhomes and building mansions in Florida so they don't get cold during the winter. What am I doing wrong? Got to get back to work.

Take note that none of them have responded yet as they are still sleeping.
