We have taken this step because we're being swamped with troll registrations,
mostly out of
Russia and the former Soviet republics, despite potent anti-bot measures.
When new users pass the anti-bot test and submit an application for
membership, the IP address of their computer is captured. We trace that IP address
to a general geographic location. We also evaluate the username and the email address for evidence of bot assistance
and for foreign ties. If an application originates outside of Utah, or if
there's anything suggestive of troll registration, the forum membership
application is simply deleted. During summer 2019, troll registrations
exploded (again, as during the primary election season of 2015-16). It has
become simply too much work for our admistrators, as the ratio of troll
registrations to legitimate user applications has become over 3000 to 1 --
despite our best anti-bot measures which require a good command of English
and a knowledge of bicycles to pass.

rider who wants to post information to this forum, contact us by email.
