Yep, trapping spam forum profiles is waaaay harder than catching spam emails. Perhaps wait until a newbie posts something before you roll out the welcome wagon?

I’m a Moderator on a Caddy CTS SPORT Site. The fact that ALL of the Spam on Here has an E-Mail Address and/or Multiple E-Mail Addresses included with it would have killed the Profile right away on the CTS site!

It’ not hard to set the Site up to do exactly that! Also on the CTS Site everyone must send a Confirmation back via the e-mail address they are going to use on the CTS Site before they are allowed to join.

That also does NOT happen on here. I’ll let YOU figure out why. SO! Everyone on here that says it can’t be done is WRONG!

”Perhaps wait until a newbie posts something before you roll out the welcome wagon?” There are Thousands of Members on here that have never Posted anything.

I checked that by working from the “Jocks” “Most Active” Last Page, Forward. I got tired of “0” Posts and quit doing it at about 5,000 “0” Entries at 35 Per Page and hundreds of pages.

Yea! I know “What a Waste of time!” I guess. But. I learned something else…................

As far as not welcoming anyone until they have Posted something …...... Good Luck! How do you monitor that?

So. With your Kind Permission, I’ll continue Posting the way I’m now doing it now. How many Other Members are doing “Welcomes”? Approximately?
