In the future, after I ban the old members' IPs, we can have a check and balance using Facebook to see who the new members are. Of course, banning will keep old lurkers from signing up again and again with a different name. We have quite a few lurkers from Russia, China, and other countries I want to remove from our group. That has always bothered me. What/why are they lurking? The way to protect the small forum is to close it, prevent people from being able to make a new membership. Have them go through a Facebook group to request a membership. We can then place them on a temporary membership after they know they must talk and not lurk. Also, by having them go through Facebook, we can see if they have any Tarawa references on their timeline. No members from China and Russia. I have had sales persons trying to get in Tarawa Forum to sell their wares!
