In light of some recent spammish activity here on the site, I'm doing some long overdue housekeeping of accounts. While most spammer accounts are easy to identify due to ridiculous email addresses, there's a good chance I might remove some accounts that are legit.
To anyone that suffers from this, I apologize ahead of time. However, please note that I am using the following criteria to determine if the account should be removed.
- The account has a weirdo email address
- The account has never logged in
- The account has never made a post
- The account has a weirdo user name
So for 99.9% of you, no worries. To that 0.1%, if you find you can no longer log in, please contact me via email and we'll get you squared away.
There should be no worry about losing any data because I'm only removing accounts that don't have any data in the first place.
I'm also adding back the "are you human" check to the sign-up process, which will hopefully thwart some of the spammers in the first place.
Sorry for any spam posts that you've seen or had infiltrate your threads. Please flag anything that is suspicious and they'll get cleared out.
