    Sorry about that chaps,
    Such a wave of spammers I had to close the board for a while.
    Measures taken, but don't be surprised if a few we've missed get through.

    If you could hit the report button when you see one, that always helps.

    Cheers,
    ~A

    It's a rainbow coalition, spoofing IPs of every great nation!

    Still coming, defences mostly holding, but measures taken may now hinder real people joining a tad.
    Sigh.

    Given that nobody sane falls for their fake passport & magic garage door blandishments, you do have to wonder...
    Must be worth their while. I suppose even the tiniest percentage of catches among 70 squillion spammings pays off eventually.

    Keep up the good work Adam. It is good work and you are clearly doing a top job ( in my short time as a member of the forum I've only, I think, had to use the "report" button once a couple of weeks ago).

    Unfortunately lockdown = more time for the spamming malcontents of this world to go about their nefarious work (plus it could always be someone in GCHQ "testing, testing")

    Again thank you for keeping the bleeders at bay.

    Kind regards, always,

    Jim.

    It's a pity we can't return the favour with a data destroying virus to their devices.
