As previously detailed, thanks to busy little Spambots, new Members Registration had to be closed!

Yes, the Spambots try to post too!

Thanks to the popularity of this site almost 2,000 new users registered today + 1,000 yesterday + 984 the day before!

These users have strange names, like "Hoastyeratast" and "Pervealatscat" - even some in Chinese characters! Others just a random collections of letters.

Apparently they're computer generated Spambots sent to attack the site.

The only way to stop these attacks was to close new Members Registration as it's time consuming deleting the nasty little creatures - and sometimes genuine users get caught in the deleting net!

Meanwhile, it's flattering that Optical Express are taking such an interest in OERML
