Member Pruning

Post by bluedonkey99 »

Just to let the members of the forum know, I have having previously discussed the matter with the other Administrators purged the forum of inactive/delinquent members!

The criteria was that any member who had joined 2017-01-01 before and either had zero posts, or had not been active since joining are now deleted. It must be noted that the majority of these accounts where the last of the members created during the "Great Battle of the Spambots in 2016".

Checks were made to ensure no mistakes where obvious, but clearly this can happen. If you have been affected, or know someone who has been affected, please do rejoin!

Mike, even though my SWMBO and me live under separate roofs, she still reminds me regularly of my delinquency! :roll:

Yes, F_IV, it's a new service we offer to our disciples. Martin even uses the latest in laser-based surgical techniques ... :P

"New" member: xvkjiqrt from Barbados (according to the flag). Was this one authorised? First post - now deleted - was an ad for online supplies of a pharmaceutical in Canada. The pharmaceutical? Cialis, which is apparently used to treat erectile dysfunction! Not sure how this would improve your modelling skills ... :lol:

Thanks for that.


There are a couple every day or so that get created. Although oddly most don't post anything, as highlighted previously. I think about 1 in 20 or less actually then post anything.

I usually block everything then delete them.

I am now able to spot 90% at first glance based upon username even before checking the gibberish profile and odd flag choices....

Odd flag choices? There goes David! :lol:

Just killed off another one, ostensibly from Senegal. The member names are a dead giveaway ... a random collection of letters and numbers. This one was pushing good ol' Viagra.
