As one of the administrators of this board I get notices of new people joining. Over the weekend there has been a good number that have signed up.

There is a page http://www.caves.org/grotto/slgrotto/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?t=16 where folks can introduce themselves and tell us a bit more about you. Take a few minutes to reply to this.

A large number of people joined the forum this weekend. However, ALL of them were just people looking for a place to advertise their weblinks to what are usually commercial sites (or worse). Since this is their goal, they don't care if their accounts are ever activated. At any rate, they don't have anything to do with caving. I deleted all of them. This is true of virtually all new users that we get on a weekly basis (which I also delete). Unfortunately, it appears that many forums are under attack in this manner. Since this forum is strictly a caving forum, it is pretty easy to spot these people.

I have seen discussion on the Colorado Caves forum regarding this topic as well.
