    Unfortunately, the only way to purge interlopers would be to go one by one and purge people. And then we'd have to guess which ones were really interlopers. For example, someone now in Florida...

    Let me start by emphasizing I am not in charge of anything besides registration. This post has a whole long list of who is in charge of what, and you will notice my name is on it only with respect...

    I don't mind adding the wacky sign-ups to the registration form, but I suspect it would complicate obscurerichard's job on the back end. I'd take this one up with him directly.
