I've noticed over the last couple of days a number of new registrations that seem to be just trying to promote there porn sites.
Many of these have most likely been robots registering so I have taken a couple of methods to help reduce them.
Now only active users will show up in the members list and as the newest registration.
I have also gone back to an old method of logging ip addresses on registration.
That way I can start blocking IPadresses of spam robots if I need to.
Hope this causes no one any problems.
