Agreed. I come here to help people and now I can't find the people who need help amongst all of this devastating garbage.

All done. Not much I can do besides damage control, though. Again, sorry guys, but I'm doing the best I can.

Agreed, but I understand what X is saying. There is only so much you can do. But all the threads should and will be deleted.

Is there any way to track originating IP's during the new account signup?

We're doing that too. The "multiple registrant" posts should fill you in a bit more.

Again, they're reusing only some of their IPs. Most are new. They'll run out, eventually, but in the meantime they'll make it quite spammy for us unless we come up with a better plan.

Don't apologize for something that is not even your fault.
