   I didn't understand the bot problem. Are you saying they will make a post that says they are a guest every time they check the forum?
              I believe to POST you should sign in.

In the long run.It's better to have a bad outcome doing things right.Than a good one doing things wrong.

No, but a bot can post spam without making a login, if the forum security is set to allow it.  Making people have a login is just another hurdle spammers have to jump.  Its not a difficult hurdle to jump, but its better than nothing

I see other forums that have huge numbers. They are basically a shouting match, some control is definitely needed to stop accuracy from being drowned in noise. Be that a drop off thread to locate very controversial(or nonsense) and repetitious posts.

   idchafee, I noticed T. Woodie has more posts than you but he and I only have 3 stars next to our name. How does the system work?

I don't know.  I assume I have 5 stars because I'm in the admin group.

    idchafee, new spam in the new members section. Usually listing their age as 75 and using their interests as the spam part.

There's a bunch of them, but I was waiting for them to make a post so I could capture and ban their IP.
