NOTE ON REGISTRATIONS: We have just found too many abusers coming from the mail.ru service and therefore do not allow registrations coming from this service. In addition, as we find email anonymizers, such as spam.la, they will not be allowed! In fact, its even worse than that. YOU WILL BE BANNED! You have been warned!


How the hell do these idiots make such a program to register on sites, its beyond me why they would want to do it, and why ?

oh well its all confusing for me to understand Laughing


We have CNBYA 4.2 installed and it seems to be doing a good job

Yeah, I've been toying with the idea of using my just released Approve Membership Lite module so that I personally have to approve every membership request. However, I would probably still ban from the mail.ru server. From what Evaders has told me, this service has basically NO checking on anything and so it is very easy to auto-create user accounts.

Who knows if that has changed in the last four months, but I doubt it! I just decided that I don't care, I'm banning 'em all...

I'm still getting 3 or 4 sign ups a week from mail.ru even though it clearly says on my YA index page I won't accept them from there.
In fact it is getting beyond a joke now, the amount of IP's I have auto banned with NS string blocker is getting so big I'm strting to wonder just how many IP's I have not banned lol.

If you were asking me, no. I don't allow mail.ru or any of the free email accounts like hotmail, rock.com, gmail etc.
My own personal view is that, people visitng my site would be doing so because they have a site of their own, therefore they have their own email address tied to their hosting account which they can use.
There are a few exceptions where I recognise the username and email address, in which case I do allow anonymous mail addresses but as a general rule, free emil acounts are refused and mail.ru gets banned.
