I know that everyone is excited about the 100,000th approaching member, however, is there any need to "pad" the membership with, for instance, some of the recent new "members" from Canada and Ireland.

I thought applicants went through moderators before getting on (my application took so long I'd forgotten I'd done it by the time an e-mail came through)? Perhaps I should have put down some different "skills" :-)

Anyway, if someone with power can ditch these unlikely types, it might prevent the odd bit of unsavoury SPAM arriving.

Thinking about "the odd bit of unsavoury Spam" in the food sense has put me right off my lunch.

They are Spammers. We cant completely stop them from registering but they never get activated.

We have implemented a new Anti-Spam registration check and I hope it works this time.
