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 Smiley

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!
