Actually, James didn't set that part up. I think we are enjoying the benefits of the Captcha thingie that's required to sign up now. James, are you screening first posts?

I haven't been asked to approve anyone: either James is doing it all, or I haven't figured it out yet.

Am actually curious about that too Frances Forum seems pretty tight from my perspective, and I thank all of you that are working to keep it that way for that luxury!

I turned on Captcha's, which keeps computers from registering, but a few manual spammers still get through. So I set a rule where the first post everyone makes gets moderated. I'm still catching quite a bit (a few a day), but is so much faster this way, and it's easy to ban the spammer and delete the postings -- so they are really wasting their time. It never hits the forum.

If the volume goes up, or when I am going on vacation, I will be asking for some help with moderation. It's really easy -- postings are postings, and spam is spam.

I feel pretty good about where we are right now. At least until the next big spam events comes along.

Thanks for the offers to help.
James
