I have had a massive clean out of accounts that have been registered in here - to the order of 10s of thousands deleted. This should make it easier for our tireless moderators who have been spending a long time manually going through spammer's accounts.

I have only deleted accounts that have made no posts. These may be some lurkers, they are mostly spammers who never made it past the filters to post. Many of them were recent (from the last month) during the problems when the spam measures were down.

Apologies if your account has been deleted. Please feel free to re-register. (I have tried not to delete recent registrations making no posts that "looked genuine", but it is really hard to tell.)
