I've got my eye on government ...

Due to continuing problems with the forum operation, and the recent registration of large numbers of "members" with bogus email addresses and questionable user names (random character sequences), we've further restricted member registration.  Member activation is still allowed, but a stronger password is required and a passcode step requiring that the applicant enter a series of characters shown on the screen has been added.

If necessary, we will go to administrator approval for member registration and activation.  I hope not, but this attack and abuse of the forum must be stopped.

I not sure what added controls are needed, but please contact me by
Email.   I know that this site has been off at least last week to me, but
an attempt this evening put me back on, using my user name and pass
word.   Probably I might be one of the orginal members, and even if
the site is not real active, I still scan and use it Grin   Please don't let it
go down! Cry

I believe that the offending tide of new "members" is being generated by "bots" that attempt to automatically register, then make automatic posts or provide information that a hacker might use.  The restrictions I've put in place will only apply to new member applicants, not to older, existing members.

Not to worry ... I'll do whatever it takes to keep the material online.
