    Look who's popular(!)

    Just wanted to flag that we've had an unusually high number of "folks" visiting and trying to register, some are delightfully human and welcomed, others may want to sell you snake oil or the latest get-rich-quick-schemes and we try to catch these before they get through.

    To give you an idea of the spike we've had since Friday, we started recording the registration attempts back in June 2011 when sR was upgraded, since then we've had a total of
    2,974
    registration attempts recorded (both allowed and blocked).
    1,054 of these are registration attempts since Friday

    So far we're holding up well and only a small number made it through to post spam but please do pm me if you get any spammy private messages/visitor messages as I'm not sure we're out the woods just yet

    Clearly, it's my WTF Picture Thread that's drawing in the crowds.

    Clearly, well either that or your OCD one.

    Maybe it's a good thing to make something like Recaptchav2 in your register form, not only one but two or three? That will probably help vs the bots.

    Look a new user! Why don't I see more people posting if we have had such an influx of registrations? Seems like we always have the usual people posting.

    did you really just ask if Bo has his cwp?
