    I just noticed that this afternoon, there were about 60 members on this site. And now tonight there are 6437 members. Somehow I'm thinking they aren't all legitimate members

    While probably harmless, is there a way to block spammers and bots from setting up thousands of accounts like this?

    I would like to know if the user list can be sorted alphabetically... much easier to find someone that way. I have tried clicking on the lette but I know there are some people that are here but are missing when I do it that way. ???

    I noticed the sudden jump from about 7 pages of members to 643 pages! Seems kinda silly doesn't it!

    Maybe . . . if all member MUST add their profile picture, spammers may have a harder time setting things up automatically.

    I tired adding a picture.... you see how far that got. I still have a gray head and no that isn't my natural hair color! LOL

    But I do like the idea! I also want to know why people insist on setting up 3 or 4 profiles... i.e. Old Guard, Old Guard AK, Old Guard MSTwife, Old Guard Seneca mom... whatever, I have seen a few like that. I can barely keep one profile straight, why in the hell would anyone in 3, 4, 5 profiles just to add their rate, rank or zip code?!?!

    Adjusted the sign up features to require verification email of user accounts. Thanks Jessica for pointing this out!!

    They are not Spammers. I loaded the User List from the old forum. I needed the old User List added so that I can load the old messages. I am working on it. Once the old messages are loaded then we can trim out some of the dead wood as far as users are concerned.

    Thanks
