Hej skipper – det er lige præcist det, Nelly har oplevet, så hun kan altså slet ikke komme nogen vegne hen – so please – på hendes vegne, kan du foretage dig noget i den forbindelse?

Sire: What I’m finding is that we’re getting an inordinate amount of bogus registrations from the following types: 1. Emails looking something like “BogusBozo6393(at)BogusDomain.xxx”, and 2. GMail. As a result, no email addresses with numbers in them, nor those coming from GMail, are even (normally) getting a second look, but just going in my “Suspect” folder. Then there are the… Read more »

That explains why my request for registration went to the trash bin.

Is the cryptic e-mail address in the original post a deliberate misdirection to weed out riff-raff?

Not to worry, Bones. The routine I’ll be running only purges those who haven’t posted or commented. You’re good.

Well, the plugin I have in mind will also purge people who haven’t posted in a set period of time also. I suppose I could tweak that a little if you really want to keep the drive-by commenters who will probably never return. I always assumed that if someone wanted to comment again, all they would have to do is… Read more »

I would wait until Saturday before downloading the upgrade you are going to use though. I may make some more changes between now and then. After all, if you are going to wait for a few days to upgrade, why not tinker some more with the nuts and bolts? I will just make the FINAL FINAL FINAL version at 0600… Read more »
