    Should we make it harder for spambots to gain access? Like only allowing admins to approve? after all, they are the ones who invite the rest of us into the forums anyway

    We'd like the keep the public section open to the public as it creates another avenue for people to get in touch with us.

    That being said - the customer only section is a strict club with big heavy bouncers at the doors - ain't no spammers getting in! (unless one of our customers happens to be a spammer....)

    Ahem. Anyway, I’m getting a lot of emails from your spammer on subscribed threads, maybe you could step up the registration CAPTCHAs…

    Maybe set a 24 or 48 hour before the post of the new user appear in the forum after the admin vetted the content?

    I wouldn't recommend signing up for email alerts from the public section :)
