When I come here I notice lots of members "logged in" who don't seem to have ever posted anything...

"Who's Online" is showing these "new members" posting something, but they never do. Seems like quite a few signed up on July 16th.

Yep. As long as they don't successfully post spam, we just ignore them. Since you have to have 10 posts to post a link, a lot of them just try to post spam but are automatically blocked. They rarely get through the automated defenses.

Maybe they should be banned? 
I always look at who is online when I come to this forum.  It is now another feature that no longer works.

I don't want to spend my free time banning annoyance bots. Ban one, another registers tomorrow. It may be possible to ban registrations from certain problematic ips or email domains, however. There probably aren't any legitimate users here using "mail.ru" addresses. I'll look into it.

I tried a filter that may keep a large number (not all) from registering.

I haven't seen several "members" unknown to me as "active" ever before until just recently.  "Members" as it turned out aren't "active" at all.  I understand the state of things and felt I should report it.  Thanks, Rev!   Thumbup

There's quite a few bots that come on as being online here: I even messaged one a while back, no reply though.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
