In response to increasing numbers of bogus new BritFoos accounts, we have started strictly upholding the requirement to provide valid entries into the "Real Name" and "Location" fields. Anyone not adhering to these rules will be assumed to be a bogus applicant and their account will be immediately deleted. We will attempt to automate this process.

Please can any legitimate user of this site ensure they provide an accurate Real Name (first and last name) and Location to avoid being deleted.

Apologies for the inconvenience caused.

Thanks
Richard

Well done for taking some steps. I wonder if you should go furher than just "real name" and "location".

For example, I apologise if this person is real, but "Olya First" is our latest member and seems to fit the above criteria. I am not sure though
after reading the profile.
