      1. Thanks for clarifying. I was just about to register, but then thought I should probably check the comments first. Glad that I did not produce more work for the team of moderators.

  1. I used vBulletin back in 2003 for my Wasteland fan site I used to run on FreeBSD, I thought it had pretty good spam filters. It’s been awhile so I can’t recall the details. Glad you are getting it fixed. 72 de AI5DD Joe

  2. Three important things:
    1. You must register for yourself at The software does not permit Administrators to do that for you.
    2. We need you to email us at [email protected] to confirm your account request as authentic.
    3. We are already seeing apparent spammers in the list of newly registered accounts, so items 1 and 2 are really important.

    Thanks for your help!
