FYI

In the last 90 minutes 29 spammers tried to register on WR.


I think 2 of those were me trying to reregister Roll Eyes  It took a couple minutes to figure out that changing my name didn't actually apply to the loggin name. Doh!

Dave brings up a point.  Changing the screen name does NOT change the login.  You will still need to use your old screen name to login.

I had to use my new screen name to login.  Though my old screen name is the same without the space, when I tried to sign on without including the space it did not recognize me.

Interesting.  I just logged out just to try to figure this out.  I have to log in using my original name.  Hmmm, I'll have to study on this a while.  Then again, why do ya'll log out?  It is rare that I ever log in because I've never logged out.  Am I missing something?

It's not that I log out, but I do clean my cookies and history every now and then.  Just as effective as logging out.

Let's see if that worked...

...yep, it did.

I use the "Vaughn McMillan" screen name all over the place, but my real name is Ichabod Horace Cornelius Jr. III. All the cute girls just call me "Ick". Cheesy

You guys should appreciate the work the Admins do here to keep the spam in check. smiley=dankk2.gif  We're getting a similar barrage of attempted spam account registrations at Family Woodworking, so I know what goes into keeping the airwaves clean.

I understand the spam attack because I was involved in a medical support website for ankylosing spondylitis and we lost it to Russian hackers.  We were amazed that our little, non-mainstream website could attract such attention but, once it was picked up by the spammers' computers we were targeted relentlessly.

The solution was to buy in protection software but we just didn't have the money and eventually, despite our best efforts, the hackers got into the admin databases and made the operation of the site impossible.  Our web provider was worse than useless when we asked for help so we shut up shop.

Deleting spam registrations is like pushing a rock uphill.
