freddie is of course a test pseudonym, so he may disappear without trace sometime, only to re-appear when he is needed again :lol:

freddie is working well, and helping to prove the false registrations can be drastically reduced. You should see the membership numbers stabilizing and not yo-yo-ing up and down so much! This has been happening as Moderators have had to delete registrations on a monotonous daily basis. :roll:

Interestingly, the three days the new canthespam software has been in place has already seen spam go from an average of 23.4 false registrations per day, plus 5.7 false registrations with unsuitable first postings (abuse, etc) down to zero in both categories. I'm not sure how long this will last, but I also have back-ups in place that should continue keeping it down automatically to manageable levels. :!:

If you notice unsuitable items appearing that manage to slip through the net, please report them for action. :)
