I was thinking...  Since we already have most all the family enrolled here, maybe we should shut down open enrollment to save ourselves the headache of cleanning up every couple of days?Huh  If we know someone who wants to join, we can add them manually....   or see if there is an option to make people signing up type out the fummy looking letters designed to prevent bots from singing up???   I forget what that is called...

Registration validation is set to "Hardest" already...weird characters with lines though it and stuff (I'd have a hard time registering)...What I DID do was crank up the spammer validation... it was set to go ahead and let anybody register and we would validate if they were ok...it's set now to stop registration if their name/ip addres comes up on the spam registration site...hopefully that will knock down the annoyances ... I don't want to completely shut down the registration because there may be someone legit that is interested...
We'll see how this goes for a while and maybe crank it down some more if we need to...
