Going to be adding some custom code to prevent certain domain names for emails from being used as well as prevent our most common type of bot, the ones that fill out all the profile fields with three lowercase letters and three numbers.

Additionally, all inactive users will be purged more frequently regardless of if they seem legit. Inactive users are users that completed their sign up, but did not validate their email. They prevent new users from signing up with the same name, but cannot actually be logged in as nor do they show up on the members list; it also prevents spam bots from verifying their email several months later, injecting their username into the members list at an earlier point (i.e. they will never show up as a user who recently joined).

Code: Select all

namespace life\somewhere {
    final class moltendorf {
        private static $moltendorf = null;
        public static function getMoltendorf() {return self::$moltendorf ? self::$moltendorf : (self::$moltendorf = new moltendorf());}
        public function shoutAt($statement) {return 'Blar...';}
    }

    call_user_func(function () {
        if ($moltendorf = moltendorf::getMoltendorf()) echo $moltendorf->shoutAt('Go back to your coding corner!');
    });
}

Not sure if you noticed, hatthirty got the forum crier to post about 15-20 threads in the introduction area.


I doubt anyone cares. No one uses the forums anymore.
