Hi

I'm new here, but couldn't help to notice there're many fake groups on the DB.

I wonder what's up with that.

Best regards

I also wonder what these "fake groups" are. If you mean teams or profiles, then there are known problems with spamming that affects most BOINC project websites. I've run cleanup scripts during last update few days ago so there should be much less of those. Additionally new BOINC code has some extra protections against spammers, which are now enabled so hopefully it's harder for spammers to create fake accounts.

In any case, if you spot any teams/profiles/anything that seems to have been created only for spamming purposes then please report them so I can deal with them. There are either specific report button or you can point me to them via a forum message or PM. Thank you!
