Some forums are starting to use a verification system for new members. It's just an ID verification where the person registering would need a valid credit card or a cell phone where a text can be sent. Not everyone has a credit card, especially some of the younger people here but just about everyone has a phone that can receive text messages. All they have to do when they sign up is give their phone number and a code will be sent via text and they would have to enter that number to complete registration. Or they can just enter a valid credit card number (the card is not charged). This should help cut down on the number of trolls that are trying to disrupt the forum. I don't know how expensive that would be to set up for this forum but it's worth looking into.
