This is the post that drove me over the edge.
Because of issues with spam, when a user from one of the large Indian ISPs registered, they were redirected to a link asking them to send their registration request by mail. However, of those users we registered, very few posted. Some added cyburbia.org email addresses to mailing and forward lists, invited cyburbia.org addresses to Indian social networking sites, included cyburbia.org addresses in "recommend this site" forms on other Web sites, and so on.
Considering the many years that Cyburbia has been online, the ratio of legitimate, actively participating users from IP addresses in India to those that have spammed and caused untold frustration to moderators and administrators is extremely low.
Now, users from IP addresses in India will see this message when they register.
Some on IPs from India that have not been blocks will slip through. Those IPs will be added to the blacklist as they are discovered, and those users will be banned or deleted if they fit the profile of a spammer.
Existing users from IP addresses in India are still permitted to post in the Forums.
