Inactive members of my website
I have a website Sabah Places, providing tourism information to visitors to my home state,Sabah.There is a forum set up just in case some visitors may want to ask some thing. Sad thing is many spammers joined the site and post links to their porn sites. I flushed out all these members and sadly have to delete the forum in the end.
I start afresh and put up a new forum. But this time I warned in no uncertain terms that no pornography and hate sites are allowed. They abide by these simple rules except for an occasional few. It is very odd that these people keep marking up the membership count on my website and do nothing else, no posting and no spamming. What is the purpose, can someone tell me please?
I was disheartened and stop updating the site, the AdSense income is next to zero for more than 3 years. I still keep the site just as some sort of community service. But the AdSense income from this strange site is picking up now for no apparent reason, it even pays for its hosting cost already! Has Google recently changed some thing that benefited my site? Or is it because those people who had been using my site all this while have decided to pay back by clicking?
All advices are welcome.

I made the Forum section of that website accessable only by paid members today. The monthly fee is just $1.00. If it does not work I will incease it to a level at which they will stop coming. Anyway, spammers are cheap skates, I am confident this will drive them away.
