I now owe many nickles to the MN 'ban jar'. Thanks for the links.

Thing I really don't understand about these 'spam accounts' is that of the ones posted above, NOT ONE had actually spammed the board and the last activity of EVERY one was the day the account was registered.

Whats the point, then? :umm

*EDIT* Gouki's list is done

I think most of them were probably created by bots, which subsequently were shut down/broke/etc.

Let me know when the ones from Gouki's list are gone, and I'll add a few of my own (just to make sure we're not duplicating).

I wondered the same thing, Andy. When I see a new member that looks like it might be spam, I'm interested to see when and if they'll post anything.

I see what Cephas is saying...about them being shut down, etc. It makes sense, I guess.

Is your banstick sore now? :p

I can't delete the users, btw, just ban them as potential spammers. Admin privelidges are required to do more.

All reported spam accounts have been reviewed. Thanks for the help, guys.

Oh, and just for kicks, I did some research... Did you know that we could eliminate almost 7000 accounts, just by deleting the ones with zero posts, whose last activity was 2 years or more ago? Gotta think that'd save some space on the servers...

Wow...I don't know much about computers but are there people sitting somewhere who get paid to just start accounts for advertising on boards like this? Wild.

Ineresting info, Cephas. :thumbup

Judging by the format of a lot of the usernames I've reported, I'd say the vast majority of them are bots. To make a bot go through the whole registration process is much more complicated than it used to be, but it can still be done.

Either of the admins wanna delete those 7000 dead accounts I mentioned? :D
