Can we get an IP check?

There's a suspiciously high number of new members posting "hi, i'm new here" types of threads in the Off Topic forum. We went from almost none over weeks to several in the last couple of days. A couple of the threads are very similar in content (eg. "I've been lurking for a long time, thanks for making this a great forum.")

It's entirely possible that one person decided to post and others followed suit, either not knowing or not caring about the Introductions forum.

What I'm more worried about is that someone's decided this is a good place for data mining or phishing and has created a bunch of accounts for that purpose. Can you check for an IP or IP range to confirm/deny? Thanks.

Re: Can we get an IP check?

There's one mama who actually is new that is actually posting and contributing and I haven't included her threads. She doesn't seem to be of the same... uh... "calibre" as the other ones.

good eye mama, all of those "members" are now banned. I saw questionable things in their profiles.

I don't know why so many are coming , I think when the site was upgraded it may have jumped ds to the top of some list so they are now coming here.
