Seems that our Toby is a persistent bugger! He keeps signing up with new usernames, but the same real name and email address, but sadly (for him) he only gets to be a reader as a new user - thanks to him, so he's never going to be posting spam again here!

Interesting range of IP addresses he is using though, I suspect he's hacked some accounts around the world. I've had him from Chicago and then, half an hour later, from San Francisco. The buses must zoom along in America! :D


Cheers,
Norm.

After a flurry of activity from our "Toby", he went away. Hooray! :D
Sadly, he came back again last night. Boo! :x
I killed him! Hooray! :D :D :D :D

Shortly, I expect, he'll learn that new users have to earn (or request) write access to the Wiki. But then again, that's not going to happen in his case.


Cheers,
Norm.

He is a persistent bugger. Last time, I changed his password to "You'll give up before I do!" so I suspect he'll be back soon. :D
