Sorry for the hassle, folks, but I need to keep these forums clean, and free of bogus accounts.
Personally, I would say we're better off with the spam bots. Most people already consider registering to be a big hassle. You'll get very few new members if you require everyone to send you an email.

A better solution would be to upgrade the forum to be more secure. I know you've already added a couple anti-spam mods to the forum, but that big mod I have mentioned to you before is still far more secure.

As I have said before, I'd be happy to help you set it up or even host it for you.

It also turns out that the spam bots are still able to join, but the accounts remain inactive.

So OK, I take back what I said and am going back to the way things were.
