I'm just guessing here but I think they can sign up with "nicknames"[-X ...but I don't think that necessarily means they have been "approved" to post or even view forum member only material. What's really nice, and props to Mike and "staff" is that the spammers do not get through =D> Now if I can just figure out these smiley thingies....

We do get the occasional human that cannot read but I have since tried to make it absolutely clear on the sign up that you can't sign up with nicknames. But yes most of them are bots and if they're not approved manually they cannot post or read the forum. Once in a while I go thru them all and delete them.

I for one am a real person, but due to safety issues, I never use my real name on the internet...you never know who is out there. You are more than welcome to ban me for it, but I'd rather remain a lurker with an odd name who occasionally says something.

Up to you though.

I get the shakes when I hear my first REAL name. I have flashbacks of a big nun stomping down the isle with a ruler in her hand.
Haven't used it since grade school.
