"There are 89 members awaiting approval."

If only there were.  I will be sifting through them to find real ones and rejecting the rest as always.

Time to do membership a different way perhaps . People who want to join could sent in a polite letter ( remember them) with their details on and the club could invoice their paypal account perhaps.  Just a luddite thought! - Scotty

hi Scotty,

i sorted it, i added the requirement to answer two silly questions, it will take the spammers a while to automate a solution to it.
