Sorry - done. I keep forgetting to check it, it's usually just pages and pages of spammers.

We should have a member selection committee- I reckon Mito, Rev, GG and JL (as minutes keeper) would provide maximum entertainment... erm, I mean a broad spectrum approach. 😁

Can't we just open a poll to approve (or not) new members? Each has their own thread? :D

I doubt we get enough genuine new member requests to make it into a thing...!

Silly question and a bit of a bump, but does the sign up page support recaptcha? Might make things a bit less spammy.

Is there somewhere I can disapprove of current members?

It's already got the recaptcha thing - it doesn't help. Most are manual signups, about 20-30 a week, so I've had to leave manual approval on. I did start creating filters to block certain addresses/IP's, but It doesn't seem to help.

That PM you sent was a bit harsh - in answer to your question, I don't think it's fair to ban Marv or Jimmy, no.

I looked for the Baywatch gif, but this one is clearly much better.

Okay Dave, I'll admit it now, your Porsche is more shonky than mine.
