Default Where has the Members List gone?

Where has the Members List gone? Some link says access to it was disabled to prevent spamming. How would a Members List invite spamming?

I, for one, found this feature pretty useful, and I would be glad to see it back. Anyone else?

ps. Hope I see this thread tomorrow!

That's right. Since the vBullletin software is a wellknown forum software, there are spambots that automatically navigate through member list to send junk/spam/spyware emails.

Even I miss that feature. Maintaining webs is becoming more like maintaining airports these days, security nightmare.

Spamming was done not only via email, but also PMs. Only about 6 members had received spam PMs till now, but I can assure you that it was only a beginning.

To prevent spamming by automated softwares, the memberslist has been taken off.
