    Hi All:

    After over a year when I began manually approving each request for access, I have seen the number of spammers per day decline from 10 to 15 per day to just one per day as of this morning. I do not approve and do not send a request so that there time is wasted as much as mine is.


    Maybe they are getting the message as the numbe of requests from Pakistani and Indian spammers have dwindled to just one today. First time that has happened in my memory.

    Must be difficult to vet the applicants... I hope the legitimate people don't give up. There's so much value here already, but it would be sad to lose out on contributions from all parts of Asia.

    Hi Bill:

    I hope so.

    George, I wish. It would probably have to be in Arabic for the spammers to understand. :(

    Today was the first day in which there were 0 spammers trying to sign on! Yeah. :)
