I may have missed the recent batch, but hadn't come across many lately. Might just be the hours I work and I miss peak spam hour.

They seem to come in droves then not at all.....even in the old forum, you'll get a heap of them....then nothing...it's like they only work once a month lol.
Usual suspect places, Ukraine/Russia/Poland/China/Vietnam/ some from USA/ and a bit from Phillipines.

The Poms seem pretty civilised and don't hear much from other parts of Europe.

We still get a lot of Newbies over in the old forum, many don't post but a few new ones do.

I'm not as active on the forums as I once was ......between work and moving plus bloody Telstra stuffing me around with my new phone connection..seems like the mobile technicians are pretty scarce now..they've all gone and they have to service the whole bloody state when the weather goes ballistic :x

Cheers

Davo

My guess is that they allow a given time for being accepted into a forum...so I guess it's just programmed to look like a sleeping member.
I still think checking the new member list regularly then doing the ISP check is the best way of assuring none of them slip in.
Hope you and family are going great ........I'm trying to settle back into Sydney life....fkn hell this joint is exxy :shock:
Cheers
