Guys, we are trying to minimise this, however if you see some, please do NOT reply on the board, as the current spambots we're dealing with set the post to receive notifications when responses are posted. All you are doing is sending data to these morons and soliciting even more spam.

EDIT FOR INFO: I have just removed over 200 fake accounts created in the past two weeks alone.

Please report the spam posts so we can delete them, and of course do not click on any of their links. And as I said - please do NOT reply to the threads.

Paul

Need to reiterate this: I have this morning cleared over 500 fake accounts, and over the past month have deleted countless spam posts.

All of these are created by spambot programs, and are there simply to get you to respond, either by clicking on a link or by responding to the post. Either way, you confirm to the spammers that their posts are gettign through, and draws other spammers to us. That's how they make their living, selling spamming opportunities.

Please don't make my job as board admin any harder than it already is - if you see spam, please just ignore it. Don't reply.
