Have just got the mesaage, and most of them are computer generated.  I have deleted most of them.  There are a few that I have sent requests for verification.

I have upgraded the captcha settings from simple to medium (Captcha are those letters that are different colours and jumbled around).  I will keep the high level for another day, as it really is hard to read.  If we get any more, I may need to look at upgrading again.

Cheers
Colin

I have got a couple of e-mail addresses that I can divert to you.  They are usually from finance ministers of some third world country who wishes to transfer several million dollars to you.  That is along with the paypal scam.  Watch out they are now after google account log ins.

I am double checking every request for membership.  I am sure that I may get the odd one or two wrong.

I am starting to ban IP ranges to try and stop it.  Russia ans Saudi Arabia have been stopped already.
