    Default Message to the recently registered or anyone wanting to register a username

    First, Welcome to V6F-Body.com.

    We have recently introduced a new protocol in order weed out the spam attacks on this forum. It unfortunately requires us to manually approve new members.

    What this means to you: Right after you complete the register form you should get an email to confirm your email. However, you will not be able to use the username and password you created until an admin reviews your membership for being a spam bot or not.

    We really didn't want to have to do this because it can be frustrating for new members that need to post questions. Hopefully, in the future, we can update the vBulletin version and upgrade the security.

    The time frame for the review process can vary. But please be patient and rest assured, we are reviewing them.

    Thanks for your understanding,
    -V6F-Body.com Team

    exactly. as well as all the viagra you can buy.

    we've been putting in prevention measures that essentially stop the spam but we also want to block the bots as well so we are not accepting member registration that has bogus emails or has an IP address that belongs to a country that other spam bot are coming from.

    It's unbelievable! I haven't seen anything like that here, but I admit that I haven't been as participatory as I want. I always say that as soon as it calms down around here, I'll have time for the Team that we are here.

    I wonder if the US could afford to take a little money from the war on drugs and use it to crush that bulls#!t. I saw a show on PBS (NOVA: Rise of the Hackers) where the CIA blew up an Iranian refinement plant with a virus. I bet this could be a task done before breakfast for the team from the movie Transformers.

    Can members do anything to help?

    I might be neglecting the QnA right now but I will spring into action to defend our thing we have here. It is precious to me.

    At the moment we don't have much of a problem. We have taken many countermeasures to stop spam. It has been working. there are of course drawbacks to these steps such as this. but for the sake of the forum it's necessary.
