I've enacted my enhanced spammer measures. We'll still see spammers as there have been several that where made before today but I hope the number of new ones will slow.

I just banned a spammer but their account was made weeks ago before the new measures were rolled out.

Chad, if you check out the Member List there are 10 pages of people with 0 posts, and about half of them have join dates in 2018. Most of them look like spambots in waiting. If you get any spare time you could do a serious purge there.

:lol:

It's actually really time consuming to delete large batches of users. The interface isn't the best for that and I don't have the access to run a SQL job against the database.

Dan does have a purging job in place that should remove any user of a certain account age that has zero posts.
