Title: User Purge Imminent!
Post by: mrstrongarm on June 29, 2010, 01:14:52 PM
looks like we've got ALOT of spammy users in tow. i'll be looking at nuking them by a number of criteria shortly.

(probably 0 posts would be a good start, so if your new - make sure you post something! )

so. user purge took abit longer than it should have. (that might have something to do with the continent hopping i've done recently, or more likely i'm just lazy :)

either way... i'm sure some of you have noticed the offensive amount of spam on the board recently. the following steps have been taken:
1) around 5000 users deleted.
2) around 2500 posts deleted.
3) recaptcha installed for registration, which *should* deflect the majority of bot registrations.

i'll install more registration tests if need be, but it should be enough as is.

sorry for any inconvenience!
