Some forums require approval from moderators when someone new signs up. Why don't we do that here?

How do you delete conversations? It's not obvious - and should be IMO.

Hi, go to your conversations, click show all, and they will come up, there is a small box on the right
of the conversation, click that then scroll down to a drop down menu and click "leave conversation'

That should do it.

We've been seeing a bunch of these. All coming from new members that have an IP address in Moscow. We're trying to keep up with banning the spammers, but some are getting through. Please continue to use the report feature so we can get the messages and posters removed.
putting my CISSP hat on…..

Why not just block the entire Russian IP space instead of blocking individual IPs?

the spammer will just move to another IP within the Russian block

when has DFO ever had a “productive” member from Russia

stop the fishing by closing the lake….

it is actually a range of IP's that we're looking at. All requests coming from that class B.

There are some other options that Ben is looking at with the tech guys.
