It never ceases to amaze me. The ideal person to take advantage of spam offers must be 4'9", male with an addiction to porn, erectile disfunction, depressive, needing a new mortgage and looking to meet ladies of ill-repute.

I remember once receiving a spam email for a pizza delivery company in San Francisco - I was sorely tempted to put in an order. 'Yes sir, UK, we'll be there in three days'. Laughing

That discription fits a few people I know!!!

Even though the registering process includes a so called security feature, what surprises me most is that it has to be done by hand as bots should not be able to register hundreds in a night. I personally think it is underpaid kids "working from home" and a lot will eminate from the internet crook capitals of the world, Africa etc.

Since this feature was added to the forum, spurious registrations have gone down from 70-80 a day to about 10 per day. It is annoying because I constantly have to physically delete them after reading their profile.

It is also one reason why I ask people to fill in a little detail about themselves on the registration. If there is nothing filled in on the form, I automatically delete them.

They are getting more cunning - today it's 'britneynude' Shocked Shocked Confused , a student from the USA who has sport as a hobby. Obviously he (or she) will not be a novelist with an imagination like that!
