Changes to Membership

Over recent weeks the site has seen a number of subscribers join with email addresses that are reported to have recent and active SPAM activity. I have reviewed all of these and have eventually removed them all but they keep returning with new mail addresses.

I have therefore taken the decision to make each new membership request require admin approval rather than auto approve on response to the check email.

Apologies if this make life awkward for anyone, but I thought it best to protect the site.

  1. I have found a small plugin that seems to stop any users registering with email addresses that are known and recognised as having been misused. Ive tested it and it works on all those I have caught so far. I’l re-enable auto subscription when I feel its safe to do so.
