    I've looked at the guest activity several times over the last couple of months, and I've noticed that most of the time they are looking at members' profiles. I'm guessing that these are bots trying to harvest members' details.
    Would it be an advantage to both InstaFree and the forum members if access to the members list was restricted to registered members?

    What @Fedora suggests is probably the best method. It is possible to restrict the Member List, but then people could just click on your name in any of the posts, etc., and get to the same information. Blocking that isn't really feasible.

    This is not about the thread but I want to say:

    @Bryan, I like so much the names in pink, blue and green! I love it! :D:D:D

    Thanks for that reply Fedora. I've updated my privacy setings, and that seems to cover everything.
