    Thanks for the reported posts in regards to the spammers, the latest one got out of control posting 50 in an hour!

    However it took me about a minute to delete all and most importantly delete them!

    Sorry for any inconvenience.

    Yeh, I mean it's no biggie... would have been abit worse if it was during the season and the forum abit more active.

    We are upgrading the forums once James gets back so hopefully that will fix it.

    Posts such as,

    ...which are totally irrelevant to the topic. Also one worded responses/posts etc can be considered spam.

    Some Spammers will just post links, we are now seeing a trend of spam that is coming from Australia as well as overseas, which is hard to control because were not 100% sure on whether it's an actual member.

    Bare with us, keep reporting... the upgrade should come soon.

    I have been reporting them. Does the site have a captcha (is that what it's called?) system to stop bots?
