Is this site being nibbled to death by spam bots?

Are you the only mod Jenny? couldn't you appoint a few of
the regulars to access the site and jam all the spammers?

Petemac.... I had someone else with access to the Moderator account, but they ended up getting upset by some comments made about their moderation.

It can be a bit difficult.

We're considering a number of options if the site gets an update.

Don't worry. Jenny's on top of it. 'Stuff' back to norm.

Now where were we?

You can always send a PM to alert me to a problem. I probably check email more than the forum over the weekend.

I've been on here for the first time in ages since I used to be a regular. With about four posts that I've made, two of them have been hampered by spam rubbish.

I know it's tough on forums, and if the other mod guy got upset then he could've just stuck to deleting spam. There are some posts that are obviously just pure advertising. In my experience of modding and running admin on forums, if you keep on top of it, spammers disappear. I don't know how it works exactly, but it seems that if they find out a site is an easy target, they flood in.

Also, the report button doesn't seem to be working. I can get to the following page, but if I put a reason in then I can't send the report.

Make that three spam posts I've seen. A whole thread of Pioneer gear for sale, all with US $ prices? Good one innit.
