    Spam User registrations

    The good news is my classipress has been running about 10 days; the bad news is not one single REAL registered user. Guess it's hard to outdue craigslist, huh? But, my real issue is my last check of registered users shows lots and lots and lots; all of them with "warez" user names, etc. I guess this is what I've seen called "spam users".

    Here's the big question: Just what is the purpose? Why do so many troubled people register? Is there some benefit to doing so or are they so bored they only want to collect passwords? I don't get it. There MUST be a reason, right?
