    Just noticed another two. I know it's a bot, but for information only, if you don't authorise your account it will be deleted. I'm going to delete all accounts that haven't been activated.

    I thought you couldn't post unless you had confirmed your account?

    There sure is, but you can register and get a free link. If you register with an non aplha character as the start, you will be top when the member list is put in alpha oder, so there a stong possibility google will crawl the site on the next visit and give a backlink. And backlinks mean prizes.

    It's one of the many tools of a spammer. No direct hits, but a boost to searcg engine weighting.
