    Thanks Owen; you're doing a great job deleting the B******S. I trust they will also be banned as members of this site.

    The members who spammed have been banned.
    That doesnt stop them rejoining under a new name.
    There are several thousand spam VMs to delete .
    Paul, Gage & my Admin powers arent as strong von Poop's .
    I'm very sorry but us 3 can't do what we'd like to resolve the situation.
    I'd like to apologise to all members who have been spammed.
    It's totally frustrating for us.
    We feel like King Cnut.

    how does one delete the message?

    You should be able to tick the box in the top right of message then go to another box at bottom left & select Delete Message.

    Hallo,

    Who is the spammer?

    Are you deleting this spam one by one? That is a big job!

    Is it not easier to send everybody a message and ask them to delete the message themselfs?

    Spamming is not the right way to carry out a message, but what dammage can this do?

    Greetings

    if there are links they might not necessarily be just to some harmless advertising

    clicking on links is not a good idea anyway as the mods have said, but it can also encourage spammers' efforts.

    big thanks to the team for their hard work.

    Callisto,

    I totally agree with your comments and yes the Moderators on this Forum do sterling work on behalf of the members.
