    Additionally, I don’t think you’ll be blocked from reading the messages if your registration has been deleted. I am always able to read when I’m not logged in. You’ll only be prevented from posting if you don’t have a registration. Rick – please correct me if I am wrong.

    I think this is a great measure to help cut out the spam. I’m dismayed every time I come on here and see the spam, and it’s getting ridiculous that the moderators are having to commit so much time to monitor the spam postings.

    Juanita,

    No worries, you will be just fine. Only those registrations that have never posted a comment will be deleted. (They are usually spambots testing the system.)

    And if by some quirk, a valid registration is accidentially deleted . . . they will only need to re-register.

    I hoped that cleared up any concerns!

    Rick – I understand your need to deal with the spam issue, but I would hate for my registration to be deleted. My husband died of cc on March 5 and, even though he is gone, I still have the need to go on this site and read the posts of the many people I have followed since we found this site in September 2005. I feel like I know each of them and it would be such a loss to me if I could not access this site.

    I may be confused as to what deleting a registration means, so if you will clarify this I would appreciate it. Thanks so much

    Wow. I’ve tried my best to eliminate the spam on our site, but it is almost impossible to keep up with it.

    So, beginning today . . .

    All new registrations will need email confirmations.

    and

    All registrations older than 30 days without any posts will be deleted.

    If there are any problems or questions, please let me know!

    Thanks,
