I wonder how this clown joined the forum. Joe has a lot of work ahead of him to delete all of this crap.

Yeah, why on earth these idiots think it's a good idea to kick over a forum as small as this one amazes me.  Perhaps going back a few days and cancelling some memberships might be one way out of it, but as you say there's loads of rubbish kicking around this afternoon when I logged on.  It's a shame, I can't imagine any business comes as a result of such actions.

All it does is just make me (and presumably a lot of other folks) mad.   I don't know a way of easily stopping it though, apart from shotguns.....    ;)

I spent this morning deleting members. The forum was spammed last night with over 150 new members. Mostly Russian. I'm now going through topics looking for spam. If you run across any please let me know.

Thanks

I logged in this morning and it's all clear and peaceful again.....    looks like you got the spam merchants sorted Joe.   It's hassle I'm sure you don't need so well done and thanks.
