    Yeah, that's why you need a barred users list so eventually they run out of name variants. Surprised if paid-for software like this doesn't have that facility. Mine was free at the time, forget the name now as it was a while ago.

    Most forum software supports banned user names.

    A ban on using porn, *porn and porn* in a user name stops any user name with the word porn from being registered.

    That would stop less than 1% of the fake registrations.

    But you can add some of the other common ones to that list, unless the names are random, in which case, not an avenue worth pursuing.

    Had some success with this on another forum.

    Thank for re-instating me Clive....I'm still laughing at being banned for NOT posting but I fully understand as I'm sure you must get inundated with spammers!

    No harm done and I'll go back to my little corner here in Southern Spain.

    cheers

    I have been trying to join the Facebook group this week but no luck. Hope they don't think I'm a fake user. Is there a special code word I need in order to join the Microlight Piolts club?
