Not to argue with you, and I am trying to be helpful, as I do have a vested interest in Orange.

But, I signed up both times, with nothing more than email verification.

Check out LakersGround.net, lead mod for 10 years. Built that site. Went through this and more.

Shut down registrations, so that all new ones, have to be manually verified by a human being. Have a disclaimer that says, "it might take us a day or two..." but, it is pretty iron clad, on shutting them down.

Filters are easily bypassed.

Preaching to the choir.

I don't set those limits, I only moderate. I have contacted our admins about it.
