When I see the list of currently active users includes the following names, all of which were in the process of registering at the same time this morning, I do begin to wonder.
antaliagdug, APACIEBRA, eageletom, Optomoimmonee, pedssnank
Is there a reason why this might be happening? Does the forum upgrade require users to be registered for previously freely available features? I know the Search facility now has a character recognition - which is a bit of a pain, but I fully understand its purpose - so maybe the security of the site has been upgraded generally.
If any of you are real, apologies. ctesiphon is hardly the most un-spambot name in the world either.
