Pretty sure I posted a while ago that I'd had to turn off new membership applications due to a TORRENT of fake new member applications. This flood was and is a bit different than we've seen before in that it seems to be a real person. I received an email requesting a new membership, tried turning it back on and instantly was flooded with bogus new signups. They also actually go through the email confirmation process and get messages into the new member review queue.. I don't think you guys see them (except mods) but it winds up being a lot of spam messages that have to be manually weeded out.. harder yet, the one by one process of deleting the new memberships!.

So, EVERY year about this time, like clockwork, RIGHT BEFORE RENO, we get this same sort of freakin' cyber attack. Always routed through some hated country.. Sort of odd that it is always right around our busiest time...

Disgruntled Russian fan?

Sort of inconvenient....
