Default Thank you, Yung!

I've been holding off posting this to make sure it's working, but Yung has turned on a feature that has eliminated the spam you all see from new users. A new member shows as "validating" and can only post in Introductions until a moderator approves two of the new member's posts. This has eliminated spammers from posting all over the forum and the two spammers who posted in Introductions this weekend were eliminated before you all ever saw them.

I know this delays new members' ability to post but I haven't seen any reported posts, which must makes the forum better for SM members.I hope our newbies understand this makes it better for everyone (y'all can tell them the stories of the past few weeks if you like)

Thank you, Yung!
Sweetness and Tessa

Maggie - I'm glad about the feature if it cuts down on all the spam. I guess my only worry is that people who come to our boards who are really in crisis over their Maltese, maybe illness, or rescue or buying, will not get to access us unless it's too late because they would likely post in health issue or rescue forum. I know there have been members who have done that in the past and even recently. But I guess there's no way to achieve both.
