Petition: Increased Security on C2 6:32 PM

We're trying to cut down on the ability to mass create profiles.

This is especially important since as of late, a banned member of C2  - hell bent on harassing C2's administration and members, mass creates as many profiles as desired. Doing so for the sole purpose of wreaking havoc and harassing.

Care2 is diligent on deleting these profiles and has even started suspending people that assist or are 'friends' with this banned member, still he goes basically untouched.

We also have SPAMBOTS cross posting porn sites.

Pyou might have in the comment section.

We need to get rid of bothersome clones! Please help!

Tribute to Jose Luis Cabezas.
,The 25 of January of 1997 were assassinated the photographer Jose Luis Cabezas. The postal industralist Alfredo Yabrán was involved in the case and after remaining fugitive he committed suicide in a field in the province of Between Rivers.

Jose Luis Cabezas was graphical reporter and worked for the magazine the News. He had 38 years the day that was assassinated. Presumably the detonating of this fact would have been the publication of photographies of the postal industralist Alfredo Yabrán in the magazine. This crime, that counted on certain mafiosas marks, generated serious confrontations to the interior of the government of Carlos Saúl Menem.
