I did send Anthony a pm about some of it. In my experience when sending a pm to a user will send the user and email and that makes Anthony see it faster. At least that's my experience.

"Sort it out?!" Well I'm terribly sorry if it inconvenienced you on this free-to-use forum!

We haven't had any like that for over a month, but it's gone now; I've been through the memberlist to delete any other likely candidates and hopefully fiddled with the registration settings enough to stop it happening for a while again.

The best thing to do when any pops up is just to report one post for each member. I then get an email to my personal account and can ban and delete the whole spam account.

But obviously, I'd rather it didn't get that far, so I'll look at better add-ons to stop it too. 👍

I can't even remember the last time we had this much.

Keep up the good work ☺

Thanks!

I know we could certainly stand to spend more time working on the forum, but actually (spam aside) it almost seems to be running better and more organically these days than when we used to meddle a lot... ::) ;D

Looks like there's been another deluge of spam. Loads in the Introduce Yourself subforum.
