Hi everyone,

 

I am aware of the spam surge of the past few days. At the moment the registrations will have to be moderated by myself so please bear with me while this passes.

 

Many Thanks,

Update: Most of the spam problems should have gone away - except for a few odd posts for accounts that have slipped trough the net. Please make sure to report them if I miss them :-) Thanks,

As you all may have noticed, we're having a new wave of spam - please bear with us as we fix things

Thanks for looking at it. Spam and trolls are the most annoying things about the internet, even worse than Canadians claiming the Avro Arrow was superior to the TSR2. :-)

I think it is now sorted - most spammy registrations have been blocked and I have mass pruned fake accounts that were already created but could still post spam in the future (there was some porn messages I had to get rid of today). Please continue to submit reports if it happens again in the future, I'll have a look as soon as I can. 

 

Many Thanks for your continued cooperation!

Forum has also been upgraded with the latest stable version and we will benefit of 6 months of anti spam service so hopefully it will be better now !
