Could save our moderators from having to deal with the kind of spam attack we've just been experiencing.
Spammer opens account (or 10 or 15 or 100)
Spammer goes to open invites and joins 10 or 15 or 100 games
Spammer moves once in each game and hey presto they can now post.
10, 15 or even 100 people now have games on their list where the spammer will not move again.
You have now wasted the time of these people setting up games just to save the mods some time.
A better idea would be to stop posters posting until they have been members for x number of days. Again this is pointless as he spammer merely sets up accounts each day and waits till the required period has passed.
Spammers happen, there is nothing that can be done other than deleting their membership once they have been established as spammers.
