Default New Users From China - On Hold

I really hate to do this, but I have little choice. The forum getting deluged with spammers from China. I am catching most of it in my filters so users never see it, but it takes a lot of work to keep them out of the user base. I just don't have time to weed through tens of registrations every day and cull out these spammers. For the time being, I am not allowing registrations from Chinese IP addresses. If you are from China and really want to register here, please contact me via the contact form and I will set you up with an account.

Trust me, I want this forum to be nothing but inclusive to everyone, all over the world, but until Chinese ISP's take steps to mitigate spammers on their end like most other countries do, I see no other choice here.

Currently, all Chinese IP's will be shown this page when they request the registration page.

BTW, this has worked perfectly. 515 redirects since I started doing this.

Hi Jeff,

I am in China, but I sure don't want what was happening from the yurtinfo.com to start happening here... It was a total pain and they never let up.

A quick question Jeff, how do I send you a private message?

Type to you later
