sorry i got way behind with registrations over there, and it looks like they are piling up here too.

you have been cleared and should have an email to that effect, if not let me know.

looks like i am going to be busy this weekend, clearing the applications

seems like that is what takes so long to clear new members, i have to do a check on their email addy and their isp to see if they are linked to any spammer problems

if it weren't for the spammers it would be a simple matter to clicking approval and letting them right in.

too bad we live in such a world of morons

So True, the little Cambi Camper forum has been so screwed over with SPAM and BOTS they just closed down after 10 years

Same great place to find out parts
There is plenty of room for all of Gods creatures... right next to the mashed potatoes...

It's a chore to vet all applicants, but that goes with the territory.

Vbulletin offers ISP/Domain blocking, various hurdles etc for new members, and still we get lots of scammers trying to register to get into our stationary engine forum. As all applicants have to be manually approved as well as all the other hurdles, we keep most out.

We also get the morons and the clueless that can't answer a question about the capital city of a US State, or how many in a Baker's Dozen, then email me and complain!

Such is life.
