Maynard, I had this happen a couple of times. They later thanked me in a post and that was their mistake. It drew my attention to them even faster.

I hit members and view new content and had 2 pages of new members with random letters and numbers for user names just in a 3 hour span. This must keep admin pretty busy

Thankfully, the software boots most of them. They never get the chance to authenticate their membership.

The ones that get thru, it's great that the membership sees & reports it. That way us staff can nuke 'em and their junk posts. Keeps the place clean.

Don't see any, but I did get a thank you from somebody a while back on a sale item that didn't sell??
Thanks for bringing this up...seems like we all owe another "BIG THANKS" to the moderators for keeping us in such good shape:
Moderators take a bow, you'll the best :rocker:
