In the past week I have deleted 5/6 new spammers advertising with IP locations in China and this morning India.

This month of June and after just ridding the board of 4 or 5 the past few minutes, maybe Admin can look into this with vBulletin like the last time when they started registering in droves.

Why are new members with random UC/LC letters and numbers as SNs being permitted to register and lurk here? Shouldn't there be a time limit of 3 months to make an initial post before being purged from the member database, and 6 months if a member last posted but since becomes dormant?

We don't remove users from the forum simply because they don't post. A lot of people just read and don't participate in posting.

As far as people who signup for spam or up to no good, KC knocks them out really quickly.

It just seems a bit suspicious to me, the use of proxies and user agents can mask their actual IP addys and browser IDs, and it isn't necessary to login to DSF in order to view forum topics and members' posts.

But those aren't users who have ID's like Dave15. Its more CJ105TL651XX or something. Easily noticeable. It gets taken care of pretty well.

Yep, either way, if and when they post spam, they're eliminated. If they don't, then they're no harm anyway. And occasionally I do go through the memberlist and delete obvious spam accounts all at once.
