God, I hate people who have to act like that with such names. FAKE and no interest in Andy Murrays whatsoever.

And what do they actually gain from registering on multiple websites? Rolling Eyes

No, @gawab.com is right, it's the ban name that Mark's put in wrong.

Mark, when you register to the forum, do you get asked to type the code above? As in "L H J 6 K" and the user needs to type it in the space below to check if it's a real person and not a robot. Can't that help against the new users that aren't real or are just spam robots?
Stupid question probably, but... I don't care.

Yep, I was thinking about the same thing, preventing automated registration processes.

I also agree - infact that feature is added in the next update of this board software. I've customised this board quite a lot on a code level but if upgrading to the next version isn't much of a problem then I'll go ahead and do that when it is released which will be very soon.
