So, what day do you think the new milestone will take place?

I'm guessing it's going to be on 10/24

Jim, I never check every day.  I normally check them 4 or 5 times every day.  If I'm online, I've checked the spam registrations.  Gives me a good way to delete them before they actually register usually.  I deleted 2 today though that actually activated their membership.  They made it too easy though.  Same name about 2 hours apart with an "s" on the end of one.

We've been getting bombarded with attempted spam registrations over at Family Woodworking. Over the last month or two it's gone up from a few per month to 20 - 40 per day. Apparently, the spammers now have an automated way to make it past the "image verification" step that's built into a lot of forum software packages. They are also getting through the e-mail verification with some type of automated tool. None of the spammers actually get fully registered though, since we screen all the registrations manually before letting anyone in.

Have you guys also been seeing a recent increase in spam attempts?
