In the last couple of weeks, we've become aware of a significant spam account problem on silverstripe.org.
We've had three times the amount of registrations that we had in the first four years of the website.
I would really like to say this is a side effect of us taking over the CMS world, but it looks more like spam.
In order to counter-act spam by existing accounts, we've had to resort to quite drastic measures,
and suspend about half of the registered accounts indefinetly. This was performed by a few
criteria, most importantly not a single post on the forum - so no active members should be impacted by these measures.
The remaining accounts might either be "lurkers", or spam - we've tried to be smart on other criteria,
but can't exclude the possibility of "false posities" (suspended real accounts). If your account is suspended,
you'll see a red warning message when visiting the forum or your profile. Please contact support at silverstripe dot com
to reactivate your account, with a line or two to prove that you're ... human! :)
Sorry for the inconvenience!
