Just deleted inactive user diyan77. Looking at the admin log, I see that Alatar deleted a user with the same username a few days ago. Do you think it's a real user trying to get in, or just a persistent bot?

I check the "whois" and am problematically racist in deleting ones that appear to come from famous ransomware countries like India, Bangladesh and Nigeria

Is there a way for a genuine user to contact someone? Say if someone who hasn't been on the board in 10 years wanted to revisit the place but forgot their login. That's the only scenario I can think of where we would get a genuine new user.

Same.

And I've had real people hit me up on FB to ask to be let back in. At this point, that should take care of almost everyone. I can't think of a way to make that 100%.

New user Hamm has an IP address in the US. I took a chance and activated them. Are they genuine? Let's wait and see...
