    Just logged on and seen the mess someone/something has done to the forum.

    Has there been any change to the forum protection to let this happen? Also what about not allowing non licensed members to create threads in certain areas?

    Could be a solution?

    Nothing changed afaik Adam. Just think it was a particularly thorough spammer.

    What I find a bit silly about the spam were getting on here lately is that it seems harder for me to report threads as spam than it is for the spammer\bot to post their crap. I've just reported 3 posts as spam and 3 or so earlier but to file the report you have to wait 30 seconds or whatever between each report.

    Have the Admins tweaked something with the filter?, I haven't seen the mobile phone ad for a while, well done to the Admins if it's down to them :)

    Regards

    No it was an Ad selling iPhones and Blackberry's posted in various sections on a daily basis, maybe they have just given up as the Admins\Mods were very quick to respond to Spam reports.

    An occasional single post slips through now and then but most get pulled by a spam filter now.

    As usual, if you do happen to spot any strays it's great for us if you hit the report button and we'll get it sorted asap :)
