View Full Version : Effective Immediately

Hi folks,

Recently we've had an influx of porn and spam "bots" sign up. We've been trying to delete those accounts as quickly as possible, but try as we might, we can't be on 24 hours a day.

To prevent these bots from accessing Blab, we've made a slight change to the sign up process. A new user signing up will have to be manually verified by one of the mods. This will result in a slight delay for new folks who are just creating an account - they won't be able to access that account until one of the mods go in and activate the account for them.

Obviously this will prevent any of these spammers to post anything, but should also help prevent these bots from harvesting email addresses from this site.
