Last week, I noticed that the number of members exceeded 4200.
Suddenly it has dropped by about 15.  Mass resignations?  
 
Perhaps the "false members" whose very first post was a link to commercial sites have been removed?  
 
Also, the Member's list by numerical date sequence has been removed. Thus, Bubu42 is no longer heralded as #544.

Do you suppose this is about Gold Sound?    Should we all send him a non-sensical e-mail

Why not? But perhaps the e-mail behind this fake registration does not exist anymore.  
 
Many forums get this (or other) kind of troll.  One needs an administrator to clean this up. Perhaps some of the regular users could volunteer for that.  
 
Often the reaction of a forum owner is to request registration validation, or using catchas... but I don't like that as it stops access from good contributors.

Why should that be?

This forum gets fewer trolls than others in which I participate, so I am not sure we need to screen new members at this point.
 
When I see these spam posts, I just send a message to the team, and they remove the user account and its posts.  Unless the problem worsens, I think we are good for now.

C'est ce que j'ai fait jusqu'à présent. Je pense que c'est la meilleure solution. La "Team" répond très vite.
