I have changed the settings so that admin will now get an email on new account registrations.
Maybe we can catch them sooner that way.

Banned four this evening so far - three of them before they could post anything.

Problem time will be overnight when my phone is on silent.

They've not been quiet.
I changed the settings so that administration get an email as soon as a new member joins and I have been banning them as soon as they sign up.
Unfortunately that one got through overnight and posted before I could get on here.

It's a pity that their minders gave them a PC to play with to keep them quiet instead of a grenade !

Thanks again, the work put in hasn't escaped my notice and I'm sure many others have too  :) :)

Particularly Murph ;) "The hammer of the spammers" ;D
