At present I have to DAILY delete hundreds of phony registrations of users who apparently are all from east countries or have yahoo accounts.

It all seems to be manual in view of the registration times and all of the email addresses are genuine and existing, otherwise my system would not show the registrations and ask me to approve the accounts. The poor buggers- a lot of work for nothing...

So at least - there does not seem to be a machine at work. :whistle:

Anyway- this is a pain in the butt, so I decided to switch registration off and de-activated the registration pages.

Registered users are asked to log in on the Kunena Board only. Logging in of course should not be a problem. :winky:

This will apply also to my other websites... where I have the same issue. So- hopefully they will go away after not being able to register for a while... :really:

Board moderator and Site-owner. I still regret the day I started analysing the prospects of MacroPore (now Cytori) back in 2004- a left-over from the tech-bubble at that time from the century change in my portfolio- and became addicted to Cytori´s fat cell technology. :cry:

That is not the issue at all. Same problem would occur with the user admin of any board, regardless of the code. :bang:


Anyway- I bumped this up, since I am getting mails from folks who want to register and find no place to do so.

So- be informed that this is all "on purpose" and just stick with reading. When I get less security exceptions I will put registration back on "green".

I switched the Joomla registration back on for any interested users, who want to participate in the discussions.

If you just want to read, you do not need to register. I will stay inactive with newsletters until CYTX is passed 5$ and the embarrassment of having a page on a penny stock has subsided. :KO:

fas, I've been wondering why the home page has been void of any updated newsletters, now I know why :cool: Kind of the same feeling I have for recommending this shit show to friends. Hopefully I will be able to save face if and when these Callan Road clowns get their act together :evil: Recent developments have once again illuminated that light at the end of this long tunnel which gives us some hope.
