Glad to see that we are back.

We are still suffering vast numbers of bulk/automated members, from known spam email providers. Is there any way of prohibiting such applications ?

If we can't ban individual providers can we stop people posting until they've been approved? It must be quicker to scan applications and pick out the valid ones than to go through and delete hundreds.

Is it still the food preparation area consultants or are the spammers diversifying?
