Email verification is now inplace. When registering, users will have to supply a valid email which can be banned if needed.

This will stop people using two accounts and stop the spammers, making this place spam and offesive message free.

Great idea David, spammers are so ***** anoying...
Ive heard of other webistes/forums doing that too...when i joined up to them, at the time..
Another *hint hint*
you look at the new users name:
eg: the banned users old name they got banned with and then like something else on the end, if that makes any sense...

I woulda thought that it would be better to do it by names with the same IP. Because I can have as many email addressses as I want, but only 1 IP, so surely that's better
but whatever...thats a good thing, keep it up

Well done David, brilliant!!, that is very good, now CF will be a "clean" site as regards that kind of misbehaviour.
On a purely selfish note, this will make the mod's work easier.

On a my thread about newcomers spamming, TRDCorolla said that IP hiding was a problem, so I PM'd him, referring him to this thread.

This is a great idea David.

At one point where my own community was constantly being attacked, I had to go to further extents (banning proxies, moderating registrations, ect.)

The community of ComputerForums will pull together on this one and defeat the spammers and anyone else that choose to cause trouble for us. In a patriotic way, we shall continue to enjoy our experience here regardless of any people who shall go against us, and we will continue to help those who can clean up such issues..

Once again, great solution to this problem David!
