Last week, the admin team quietly reopened CR4 site registration.

Unfortunately the site was hit pretty hard with spammers the weekend of May 15.

We have decided to suspend registration indefinitely.

We apologize to new visitors. Please reach out to CR4admin@globalspec.com for updates.

Thank you.

Upsetting that people will do this "just for fun(?)"

Just plain malicious......

Agreed, yet apparently some of the spammers manage to make money, so it's not "Just for fun".

Any updates, HUSH ? I'm not overly bothered, it could be the usual spammers/disruptives perhaps being more active over the past 18 months. My participation in CR4 has been poor for a long time, but may I suggest a way back to 'normality'. Accept registration if backed by a person/s in the community known to Admin as being a constructive member. That's sticking work on you all, but some sort of return to whatever is normal will have to happen. I don't have anybody to commend, so no agenda with me, it's just a thought about how to kick-start and I'm certainly not suggesting such becomes the norm.
