It just gets more and more ridiculous each day. ::)

My new registration system for the time being (i.e. until I find a better one):

Maybe it will be more work, but at least I will only be dealing with genuinely interested people. ;)

That sounds like a much better system :yup:

Yeah, even if you get two or three real applicants a day, it will probably be less work than going through stacks of phonies. Sounds like it'll work!

Sounds like a good solution, Sylvia, though I still wish we could find a way to make all the bots pay the membership fee!   ;)

I've just looked up what a bot is on wikipedia and it might as well be in another language!  I just don't understand what they do and why  :-[

However in view of the nuisance they cause, this new system seems much better Sylvia, hope it gives you less trouble.

I had forgotten that disabling registration does not remove the "Register" page for guests browsing the forum. It just causes an error message to appear - not good because that turns prospective members away! :o

I've fixed this as best I can by adding a link there to the page with information on how to join. 8}
