... They'll get to known if there is any new post when they revisit. Well, that's one of the reason. I often register every forum that I'm interested in.

I know about the forums that requires registration after certain views. I actually do not like that kind of forums at all. Every forum should be viewable.

99 percent of the people who register and login to my site are spammers and I take several messages a day off my board because of it .... running 1.3

Upgrading to the latest version of YaBB will eliminate nearly all bot spamming, human can still spam... but you can greatly reduce those too.

You will also get people joining and just view messages without logging on, I get this with one of the football forums I run.
  

Cheers

I've seen this kind of member put spam links in their profile or signature, which can be seen on their profile page. It's a way of spreading their stupid spam links without having to go through posting.

They don't get anything done. I usually delete them

Spammers AND scammers, sure, but others probably don't know what they're doing. I think we've all had those moments.  Embarrassed

Interesting.  Other than that there are lurkers.  They join, they read, they find answers to the questions they meant to ask and have little to say since they're busy running their board and getting to work.

What does a member accomplish by registering, but never using the site or posting?  Many of the users have very spammy addresses but don't post. I have got to think there is a reason why they do this.  Are they stealing bandwidth?   Huh
