They are like most of these "users", you find under birthdays:
PhiliainsarpBip (25), carolinegonez (25), StupsFugScuddy (24), Annoumngot (23), cithromaxer (23)
Some of these show up daily ... a lot of presents :mrgreen:

Evidently even after we ban somebody they still show up as users.

They may have strange birthdays

but they are weirder than that - They never post anything - Zero

start at page 35
http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/ ... start=1700

Note the 'Posts' Column and how many join a day


Then >Next> a few more pages

by page 40 we are getting hundreds and hundreds of joiners who never post


and this continues upto the present day

page 102

You see that 28 members joined this Tuesday - Not one of em posts

[ Perhaps the pre-historic zero-posters have been cleared out - but... strange...]

I know I'm paranoid, but this is like being haunted .
Spooky place this DB :-)

Or maybe they just wait.

I've seen bots that made their first posts after more than a year.

The forum already got the Anti-Spam ACP plug-in.
Guess these arn't in the database yet.
