Can something be done to reduce the amount of fake accounts/spam postings on this forum? At a minimum, adding a Captcha check during new account registration? The current 'how many letters in RAV' check is easily bypassed with a script.

I would guess that considering that interest in the RAV4EV isn't likely to be generating large numbers of new members, we could even afford to require moderator approval of the first few posts for new accounts.

When I was a moderator, we just didn't have these issues. Oh well...

Hi All,

I've deleted the spam and set new accounts to need to be approved before they can post - hope that helps!
