Don't you have the 'ability' to restrict/prohibit guests postings? I'm sure you can but I'm not a Wizard around here.

Guests can't respond to posts.  What I was mentioning was that people that were members of Delphi that closed their accounts became guests. Their posts are still there, but it says guest where the nic is and there's no profile.

You are welcome,

Meddly does have a point though, you can restrict any new (to your forum or Delphi) members from posting by using either Full Moderation (all messages will be moderated from those without Voice, you then grant voice to your regular members and new ones as they are approved) Or using a post waiting period.

If you are interested and need more info or clear instructions - that can be provided here as well.

Delphi also has this advice

Thanks for the info, but not even the ####### got us to change to moderation, we like the open forum. Been around since 2000 and are pretty seasoned regarding troll control, We even give trolls a chance to post nice before we zap them.
Wow, I didn't know that groups name was a forbidden word lol!! 
Take care,
