Forum registrations from Russia?

Question: I’m getting a lot of registrations in my forums from Russian domains. What gives? Should I ban these? Any suggestions? (Thanks!)

  1. I wouldn’t pay attention to them unless they start spamming you…

    On my phasedma.com domain Japan ranks as the 4th as far as visitors (only being beat by .us (US) and .ca (Canada)).

    So I don’t think it’s actually that odd (outright anyways).

  2. They’ve been registering, letting them idle for awhile, then spamming. At least, that’s how it’s been in the past. So, yeah. I’ll try not to mind them too much.
