Latest members and Spam
« on: November 20, 2018 »
Interestingly the last 5 new members to the site subscribed today firstly 7.35am. - 7.53am. -  8.02am. - 11.42am and finally 12.38pm.

Certainly the same person who has already posted a spam message.

I believe that this person is a regular user of this website as I find it extremely doubtful he/she would randomly use a site such as this with what could only be described as a very low active audience.

I have my suspicion as to who it is.

I would suggest its created automatically by a computer program that finds sites where there is no personal vetting to join.

Exactly! this is why a lot of forums do not allow a member to register and post the same day, they need to be vetted first, the spammers use different IPs and emails and they are difficult to block, so a two day gap before registering and posting allows them to be deleted before the post goes live.
