In addition to what Mike says, could new members complete their profile when signing up?

We are now receiving numerous registrations from spammers and as such Mike and I have to make a judgement on each new member before activating their accounts. At the moment we are getting at least 10 spam accounts for every genuine one.

The problem we have is that if members don't complete their profiles, we will find it difficult to assess whether or not you are genuine - and if there's any doubt, we are likely to assume the worst. A properly completed profile (location, interests etc.) will help greatly and will reduce the risk of excluding a genuine member.
