new user activation

Post by enrico-sorichetti » Mon Jan 16, 2017 3:18 pm

IMO it would be better to let auto-activation kick in
auto activation stores in the log the IP address of the origin of the request
( makes easier to identify a probable spammer )
activating users by hand stores Anuj IP address

I guess You have noticed the patterns of
the spammers IDS the odd flags and the IP of the request

when You see an id like MichaelLag, a greenland flag and a russian IP addres
just guess what 8-)

one more thing, I have noticed that many spammer have yandex as part of the email address
and yandex is also one of the bots oogling around

for the safety of the forum and of the legitimate user it would be wise
to be more selective about the bots allowed

if possible just deny access to the russian bots
