this is getting silly, there must be 20 strange people registering at this moment, we are definitely under attack but who knows to what purpose,

can't we get rid of these people?

Yes David, and it's been like that since Dave took over.

Smile Re: Suspicious,or what ?

Guys

My other forums were similarly affected. It appears that the human verification system of putting the text you see in a scrambled box/image as been cracked by spammers.

World Designs is very well know and mature. Hence if figures highly on the spammers lists. Over the weekend we were getting over 1,000 attempts a day, almost one a minute.

I have now change the human verification to ask how many channels there are in a stereo system, in the last 15 minutes, far from another 15 attempts, there have been none!

I believe this has fixed the problems. Also I have deleted the 3,000+ members waiting moderation. This appears to be OK, but would be pleased to receive comments?

It was good to meet so many of you at the show this weekend.

Regards

Dave
