Sooner than later we need something like the proposed Captcha or similar things in place.
Big "Thanks" again to all the moderators and hopefully the founder and administrator of this great forum still shows a little interest in it.
I have little doubt that it's coming from the same computer. My response was in regards to Celine's suggestion of blocking the IP address. That would not work in this case.

In addition, that's not something that I or other moderators can do nor the implementation of a captcha registration process. These things have already been discussed and continuing to bring them up is of no benefit to this thread. The people reading the thread already understand what would help.

The moderators are acting on problems and just putting out fires before they get big again because that's the best we can do.
