Hello peoples,

Every now and then you'll notice posts advertising random crap from spammers. Now as much fun as it might be to reply to them (for giggles) it actually makes our job harder at keeping the forum clean. When a spammer creates a new topic, we can delete ALL their topics with the press of a single button. However, if anyone has replied, those topics will remain - so we have to manually browse to each spam topic to delete it.

So if you read a spam post and think of a funny reply, just have a quite little giggle to yourself.

Cheers,

Roger.

Worzel has been very careful not to let these spam accounts slip through the activation process, in his absense it has been left up to me, and of course I accidently activate a handful of them. If you see these spam accounts, please ignore them. I will delete them as they crop up.

Sorry guys.

Well, we haven't had spam posts for AGES, since we changed the registration process to involve answering a simple question.

However, today someone did take the effort to go through the registration process, just to post some spam. That post did have a (.rar) attachment, which was downloaded 3 times. Please be aware that if a post looks like spam, then you should avoid downloading the attachments for obvious reasons!

The post and user have been removed.

Cheers!

Rog.
