I've now changed user activation to require me to approve people before allowing them on. If this proves too unwieldy at any point, I can change it back, but hopefully it should scare off a few more useless spammers.

And just to make it clear - Mr. recently-signed-up-and-now-deleted-golfing-person, I'm talking to you - if you start advertising spurious rubbish, then you are gone.

Again I must state that due to the large amount of spammers currently trying to register acounts on the forum (as of 16.6.11), you might experience a short delay in having your application sorted. We really are sorry about the wait.

If you have had your application rejected due to the fact that we have mistalen you for a spammer, again, we do apologise big time but never fear. Just sent a mail to: i n f o (at) t i n y f i s h dot o r g and let us know that you want to become a foum member along with what name you plan to use and we'll fast-track your application.

I have added some new antispam gear. Hopefully no-one will find this out except spammers. It did mean I retroactively found more spammers though.

However, to reiterate:

"Again, If in the unlikely event that you have been screened out, contact us at the address printed above or through our facebook page."

Update: new antispam measures have caused spam to drop like a rock.

Further update: New Captcha thingy installed. Should hopefully knacker remaining spammers.
