Spam being posted

Post by Nina » 28 Sep 2019, 09:16

Unfortunately over the last week spammers have managed to get round our security measures and have been posting large numbers of spam messages (about 100 on some days) in various sections of this Forum. We are working to increase the security to get around this, and we will be installing further security measures in the registration process. In the meantime we are banning the users and their ip addresses and deleting the messages as fast as we can, but these spams are being posted by spambots and not actual humans, so they just keep coming.

Hopefully we will get rid of this nuisance within the next couple of days, but in the meantime we apologise to users if they encounter these spam messages when they access the Forum, as the messages are not only irritating but many of them are offensive also!
