Then their lurkers WKF, lurkers do not need a forum account.

Har, our anti-spam mod blocks bots from activating their account but they can still attempt to sign up. They just leave a load of unactivated accounts which can also be deleted quite handy. Basically the plugin has a big red sign saying that you must not enter any information other then the usual email and username. Most bots will try to add websites to their profile whioch is where the plugin kicks in and stops the activation mail being sent.

Romps, although I don't doubt your excelent attention to detail there are those certain people out there who will somehow miss it. Besides blame the numpty who made it, I just added it :)

N1ke. Perhaps it better if I just delete the unactivaded accounts rather then those with 0 posts.
