I'm guessing there's a glitch in the automated character recognition system.

We are being attacked by humans, not spambots, which is how they get around the registration process. We will do our best to keep on top of it but feel free to let us know by email if you see one.

I've noticed that there are shed loads of new members signing up with very automated looking user names - the latest being member gdne4z8w15. Doesn't look like the user name of a person who want to talk about port. Although I would be happy to be proven wrong.

The new automated system isn’t perfect. We are deleting dodgy registrations at a fair clip.
