Brozon1 or ppw09116@boofx.com from Kansas - the bit near beijing again - and who has a 1998 Suzuki benz - whatever that is.
Another banned ip address. Oh dear, never mind.

It would be nice for some people who register - then never post - to pop back.
Strangely enough most have gmail.com emails, so I might have a clearout of those who never post and not let gmailers in as they just seem to waste my time.
I send a 'Welcome' email to ALL new folks, but I can't tell if they get them, just that they don't ever return. So in future, anyone with a dud bike, dud ip address or crap email will be deleted immediately.
Comments please......

I use gmail.com.
I have no idea why there is an issue with gmail registers, but I wonder if it might not be a bit harsh to ban gmail.com people?
I wonder if gmail.com is banned, the next problem would be Yahoo.com

Here's another this morning - meetaddsay , email lp37vrzabjae@protonmail.com - another one from the USA - the bit in hong kong. So, dud email, dud name, insufficient details, hong kong ip address, silly bike details. Not really much going for him, so he's gone for ever - banned ip address.
My comment on the gmails were a bit tongue in cheek as lots of people have them - usually from a mobile phone - but after registering (for approval by moderators) most never return, not even to check in, much less to say hello.
I usually get on here a couple of times a day - morning & evening UK time, so that's when I see and approve (or not!) new registrees. Evans gets on at different times as is convenient to him. I think the main problem is that everyone wants or expects everything to happen instantly but on a world wide forum, it doesn't. In the past there were regular spamming and offensive posts, mainly from the chinese/philippines neck of the woods, so I changed the registration system to 'admin approval' and spamming now seems to be under control, but there's not many of us and we use our FREE time to do this. I won't ban anyone who posts from having a gmail addy - I have one and google insisted that I needed one when I got my android phone many years ago - and never used it after being spammed by google! But there's lots who never return - dunno why not unless it's the instant thing - so when or if the need arises, I'll thin out the 'never returners' after, say three months, and post details here.

qin06794 or qin06794@zwoho.com who thinks London is in china.
I immediately ban all chinese applications as most of the spam seems to come from there, any dodgy names, emails or 'other things' that aren't right cause immediate permanent ban.
I'm thinking of banning anyone who can't be arsed to say hello on their first post. :twisted:
So many nowadays don't seem to have heard of politeness.....
Gawd, the grumpy pills have really kicked in this morning.

opaylise8@protonmail.com gone today. Thinks hongkong is somewhere else. :roll:
