HI guys
I have been trying to keep on top of this for you, so far today I caught about 10 spammers and at one stage I was banning one and another would pop up. The spam filter should catch them but some get through. If you do find a message just report it, the culprit will either have been delt with or one of the mods will sort it out. Just don't open anything or reply to them

Sorry for the spammers. I'm getting more blocking on the forum and now have all new registrations being manually seen before they are approved.

Thanks for reporting them so we know.

Thanks Angie. You are on the case. They shouldn't be able to get by the registration process. And, don't forget to check their IP addresses.

New batch of spammers since about last Thursday. Russians. And IP not used for spamming before so the filter did not catch them all. But now we have more blocks here and on the server.
