    Arrow Another Spammers ?

    Just noticed that they always exists in the "now online" box and when you click any of them to view its profile ,it says last activity was XXX and now offline ... and they have 0 posts while a good ad at their profile's favorite website ...
    I know this doesn't break rules by any manner ... but I don't think it's a good idea to let them here all the time , they finally want to advertise, and I confirm they are not real ppls.

    here is some examples :

    If they join to spam, their posts get deleted (usually before anyone sees them) and their accounts are banned.

    This doesn't stop them from creating other accounts, but we handle those as well.

    I noticed that this forum registration doesn't require an email confirmation ..
    so this may stop a good number of them .
    Personally I prefer to delete them and every new bot registeration like them ; delete it too .. specially because they r not too much now .

    We do delete their posts when they are found. The ids are banned, but not deleted.
