I've just deleted 50-odd obvious spam-bot signups from the past year and a few probably-bots. I apologise if I've wiped out any lurker accounts - please just recreate and make sure you fill in a name in your account details.

After deleting another ~150 spam accounts from just the past month I have reluctantly added a captcha to the signup form. If this causes a problem for you please send a message using the contact form.

And again; deleted 200-300 spam accounts; almost positive there was some collateral damage of genuine users for which I apologise. Please create a new account if necessary.

At some point however I will probably go through and delete every account which a) has never posted or b) does not have a name I recognise attached to it.
