Inactive user accounts purge - 28 Sept 2012 and onwards

Post by charles »

Spam has been one a huge up-swing lately. In order to try to counteract spam accounts that have recently been created but not activated while I play with the registration settings to try to stop spambot registrations, I have purged the "inactive" accounts from the site. Additionally, I plan to regularly remove inactive accounts in order to remove potential spam accounts before spam is posted to the forum from these bogus accounts.

This should not affect any regular users of the site; however if anyone was just starting a new account and had not yet activated the account via the activation email sent by the forum software, you may need to re-register.

Thanks for your understanding.
I started many years ago to help celebrate and inform about El Degas instruments. It all started with a used Ric 4000 bass copy I bought in circa 2000.

El Degas stable as of 03/2022: 42 :shock: (13 bass, 26 electric, 3 acoustic)
