I was tagged as a moderator on the GLSAA site around the first of the year. I get hits every day that are mainly spammers. It is hard to tell by the information they provide if they are a spammer, but one bad post and I get to ban them for life. The GLSAA numbers are nowhere near 10,000 though.

I got 53 fake registrations in the past 24 hours. That's why I put in a two-part system: register, then email me with the user ID. There's no real person behind these; it's all automated, and so far only once has that follow-up email been sent.

I can attest to the same thing... Our board has a "approve and require activation" feature I am using that on everyone that signs up at this point..

I'm just posting here to get the quad-fecta of posting in all 4 categories. Carry on.
