>New registration zionrockguides (10327), temporarily given benefit of doubt due sniff test comes up sweet, despite being Cleantalk +ve with one entry record for a spam attack. SFS clear at this stage. Will be monitored closely and registration disabled if required.

New re-registration zionrockguidesut (10337), once again temporarily given benefit of doubt. Now has 7 entries (*) on SFS however this time on a different Philippines IP to their previous registration, and with all other details in alignment with previous registration, but I am still curious, so am re-allowing it for the time being.
They may have simply forgotten their previous password?
I will monitor ongoing and likely disable their first registration if they start using their second one, and disable both if they spam us.
(* 7 entries isnt a lot by typical spammer behaviour which often gets into the hundreds over a couple of days. I rechecked the last IP they used and it is still sitting on 6 entries.)
