Spamming....

I did a cursory look at spamming in the last 24 hours, and I counted over 10 unsuccessful attempts. I got three of them. Dons got a couple, etc. The forum management aknowledged that spamming was getting worse, but it seems to be coming in waves now.

Just FYI.

I've taken to trying to anticipate the attacks from a point noted by Ade earlier. I've been watching who's logged in and noting the actions of those completely random multi number and letter screen names that appear to be spam bots. I've been able to preempt a couple, but in most cases, they've already been killed.

Note: if by chance I (we) inadvertently ban a real forum member by accident, please accept our apology in advance. Not intentional.

Well it is on an MV related forum. And it is often in a red font with a silver background....coming from you, I would almost take this seriously

What we've got here, is failure to communicate.

Hahaha, no worries Rob, the last thing will I do before quit, is to divert all spam to your email account.

We tried Rob.....we tried. Unfortunately, we had overwhelming unanimous support demanding that we carry on. In the face of such support, we renegotiated a huge pay raise in order to stay.
