|I'm assuming the statistics - http://www.phpclasses.org/professional_statistics.html - includes crawls by search engines? Please can these be excluded from the statistics since they give a false impression of the genuine interest in our profile?|
Thanks for your consideration,
p.s. It only took 3 days from creating a professional profile to receiving our first spam from it ;-)
However on the positive side, we also *have* received a little work from this site :-) (Gracias Manuel!)

|The accesses by search engines or crawlers that explicitly identify as such are always excluded from statistics, as well your own (logged in) accesses as well site administrator accesses.|
As for getting spam, it seems that unfortunately there is some people investing on paying to override CAPTCHA validation.
Soon I will be adding an option to let users not disclose their contact e-mails. Instead there will be an option to make the site send users a message with a contact request. Then users decided they want to reply by e-mail. Please be patient while that is not available. Sorry for the inconvenience.

No problem about the spam - I wasn't really complaining ;-) It's just astounding that people think they can make a living by sending spam!!

|Apparently there is a spammers business model around breaking CAPTCHA using real people. I intend to publish a blog post on this after I have the options to not disclose users e-mail addresses directly.|
