"EVALUATING 2009 (9)" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)
WWW, December 10 2009 - Where on the old Dubroom Message Boards there were a lot of people who simply registered without ever posting a thing, this is no longer necessary or even possible on the new boards.
Because people are manually added to the membership list, they logically have to apply. Simply creating an account at Yuku is just step one in this two-step process. I see the very same phenomenon of people registering without posting, as I observe how people register but do not apply.
Anyway, there's a nice side-effect.
Even though the measure is there to prevent automatic registrations of "spam-bots", it does also prevent most "trolls" or cyber bullies from being able to mash up a thread or even complete fora with their dung.
One Love, Give Thanks,
Messian Dread (Dubroom Webmaster)
