Sometimes it happens unfortunately. We have several anti-bot protection measures but if someone human sits down and decides to take the time to sit down and create 8 accounts and spam with each one, then there is little we can do sometimes.

I will update some of our registration security questions that need to be answered.

Thanks for all the reports in the meantime, makes it much easier to clear up quickly.

I have a friend in Yorkshire that had the same problem with spam in his message pages. His solution? nothing gets posted until he or one of his moderators checks it first. Ok it means that there is a delay between posting seeing your message on the board and getting replies but it works 100%.

No real spam problems on the FCF, which seems to have considerably more traffic than here. Just a few tweaks required by Andre, that's all.

Human moderation should be thing of the past with the tools available. On top of that, I presume Andre has a life away from here, and doesn't want to be an unpaid netcop. He gives enough time and money as it is to keep us with a forum.
