Calling All Admins

All new members must now be confirmed by an admin. Unfortunately, this may prevent some genuine members from joining but it will stop the bots. When you receive a notification to confirm them, hover over the send an email to them button on their profile, and see what the address is. If it ends in .ru don't register them as they're likely to be bots. Also if the email looks spammy don't register it either.

can't figure out how to activate, but it looks like this page may be a way to do things quickly:

adm/index.php?sid=944db9e60c3b59e5d3ba754eb74094b8&i=12
I have come to feel strongly that the greatest service I can still render to my fellow men would be that I could make the speakers and writers among them thoroughly ashamed ever again to employ the term 'social justice'.

Go to the Users and Groups tab and click inactive users. Then tick the box for each user you want to activate and then click submit on the bottom.

Edit- The best thing to do is to see the time of the earliest notification and then find that on the inactive user list. Then look to see which email addresses look legit and activate them and leave the rest of them.
