there seem to be a lot of questionable logins to this site...should be some way of monitoring before accepting just any attempt...looking over the list, I see several "logins" which clearly are from people who have no interest except to 'clutter up' the site...i.e., Sparky, Santiago, abs, vaevictus, Max, callumFR, gagadget, hmmmm, paldous, urgen, guest...and on and on... just my thoughts, but if you ask for names and locations, then those should at least be supplied...don't know how much server space you have, but won't be long in filling up with such drivvle...anyway, a GOOD site for Hams and honest amateur 'wannabys'...so keep up the good work...73 from Barstow, Ca, USA

don't worry: The server space and bandwidth is sufficient to accommodate an almost unlimited number of users.
Some of the strange login names are actually in use, and they practice on LCWO. Maybe they do not (yet) have a callsign or prefer to remain anonymous. That's OK with me, as long as they don't interfere with the operation.
Anyway, I appreciate your comments, and hope you're enjoying LCWO.

Some people use many sites on the internet. You should be aware that those "logins" are just usernames. My account has my full name on it.
if you look on arrl, you can find that i'm the only license under that name.
Some people user many internet sites, and in fact may have been using the internet longer than they've had a callsign. My username is the same one i use on dozens of websites. There was no suggestion on the login page that i should use my callsign as my login.
As far as being one of the "logins" which clearly are from people who have no interest except to 'clutter up' the site, I've submitted code to dj1yfk, as well as suggestions, and in fact, I even created the icon for the site you may see in your address bar.
Please be more careful as to judging someone based on their username, as it is not a good metric for doing so. Some of us who chose not to login to the site with our callsign are in fact not such drivvle.
