Recent SPAMMERS on the Forum

Post by alexperkins » Mon Jan 23, 2012 8:03 pm

Guys

Cheers for reporting all the spam recently

Im doing my best to keep on top of it, but it takes time - today Ive got 25 users to ban and about 40 threads to delete because of it

Can I ask if you see it, that you report it if someone else hasn't done it already

Fingers crossed we can get on top of this

Cheers

Alex

I've just deleted a bunch too...

Buggers seem to be getting around the sign-up security :(

I deleted several threads last week but there seems to be an awful lot at the moment

Just have to keep on top of it, must be SPAM season or something :x

Could a mod please remove the check for when I post? Thanks!

Also, don't seem to be able to send PM's, is this because I'm new too?
