    Itís not like bidding on an Auction, so if it takes a day or two to approve new members, Iím sure it wonít affect the sites image. I doubt it will ever end up like E30tech where the approvals will languish for weeks or years.

      No, I doubt that would happen. Chris was often MIA, and he was the only person who could approve members. If the mods here can approve new members, I don't see it being an issue.

            In December I went in the membership database and banned any member that looked like a spammer two months prior to that time. Was kind of easy to spot them, most of their profiles said New York with a 2011 BMW plus their IP would not match their location. Everyday since then I've been checking new members to see if they are legit. Plus with the rest of the staff being ontop of banning the spam when they see it really cut it down too. A IP filter was put in on part of Asia and since then, I've noticed a severe lack of activity of spam. Good work by everyone all around.
