      Lol. A confirmation code is a ridiculously easy fix. Just add a captcha to the registration like almost every site does recently.

        And what about the spammers that aren't bots? How do you intend of preventing them to register?
        I don't think captcha is an effective way to deal with the problem.

          And they're learning. Instead of posting links to their sites, they're just filling their about section with uninspired copy/paste messages.

            Capcha is more effective than the lack of it. Also, putting limitations on fresh profiles can do the trick. Not many spammers would wait too long to start spamming.

                I still think captcha isn't needed on Interpals : ) We need better and more effective ways to get rid of scammers. Most of them seem to be very real to me so they'd easily be able to register even with captcha.

                  So, what would be that better and more effective way?

                      Ooooh, I know!
                      Let's assign some really badass looking people and give them the "Spam-Hammer"

                      So whenever a Scammer account gets reportet, they check - and if it's true, they'll kick these accounts as if they're trying to score a home run.
                      How does that sound?
