Howdy Folks, Ladies & Gents All!
Well mostly all…
Well mostly and quite less than all!
Meaning and to wit:
In my best efforts to keep this forum lean, clean and fun for our great people, while banning the weekly menagerie of idiot spammers, I began clicking on Members names.
I was sickened to find that many of these Members are fake and just made up.
Many of these ‘names’ are nothing more than multiple accounts using the very same IPs, hostnames, emails, etc.
I don’t know how or why this is happening. Or who, if anyone, is actually behind all of it – But this is SPAMMING! And it’s a false inflation of actual real Membership counts!
There are literally thousands of these throughout the Membership list!
So that we don’t have to enforce any sign-up restrictions like those Adam Gussow and The Slidemeister and others have had to do on their forums:
In OUR keeping this forum REAL, for REAL People, I am now in the long arduous process of removing these fake names and such from the Members logs.
Just giving you a head’s up, as I believe as you should, that having a few 1,000 real or so live harping fans, enthusiasts, students, etc. is better than 9,000 + made up ones!
I’m still here! I’m still working on the forum and playing my harmonicas!
Hope you’re doing good yourself!
Thanks for reading!
Keep On Harpin’!
