I had already removed a shedload of spam from Toland9272 and banned him this morning, but then 4 more spam sandwiches fly over the wall and on to the forum - from the same source!

I wonder if our defences need shoring up?

Exactly, Pete. I can't see no sense, reason or logic as to why anybody would want to spam.

Something that is rather disturbing : some of the spam ? websites reappear with another obscure prefix as fast as they are deleted.

Two of these are @mail114.net and  @163.net reputedly both are based in China ??? (try Googling them ;))

We seem to have a few of them, they don't seem to be active and haven't viewed the forum since registering they just sit there; so why have they bothered registering ??

Well people do end up doing something stupid from time to time. But it amazes me how much effort some people go to. Its a bit like going out to play knock down ginger on your own when it raining and cold and your favorite TV program is on. But then they probably are sad lonely people.

A load of spam came through this morning. The spammer registered on here before posting. Did he/she register to get round the spam block, or whatever it is that's used to stop spammers spamming?

Nineteen posts by one of them, even bumped his own thread !. The other poster obviously had a Chinese connection - I was automatically invited to translate but assumed I might say yes to something far more sinister than a translation.

Thanks to mods (Murph ?) for cleansing our wonderful forum. This spate seemed to happen while everyone was watching the FA cup final.

Anyone else noticed the MASSIVE increase in new members over the last few months ?

I would guess that most are/were ? potential spammers >:(
