It is a sad fact of life that some folk will go to he effort of joining a forum just to post Spam. :(
Some people do this for commercial gain and others out of sheer malice.

A number of these spammers are caught by the registration process of this forum & such accounts are often deleted before they have the chance to post on the open forum.
Sadly a few of these manage to post on the forum.
Each time I see such a post, it makes me feel that I have failed the genuine forum members. :(

We feel the best way forward is to change the new user registration process.
New users will now need to have their accounts activated manually, this will be done by the forums admin.

Important information for new users.

When creating a forum user name, please give the matter some thought & avoid random sets of characters or user names that are gibberish.
Such accounts are unlikely to be activated by the forums admin team.

If any prospective forum member encounters any problem creating an account, please contact a member of the admin team, we are here to help.

We thank you in advance for your understanding. :)
