Spam on the forums - trying to control

Hi, everyone.

As you may have noticed the PCA forums are again under attack from spammers.

We are trying to ban and delete them as fast as they come in but controlling a big attack on a weekend isn't easy.

That's our Saturday afternoon sorted then... :(

It would be really helpful if, when you spot something untoward, you could let me know via email, rather than posting about it here.

There are a number of reasons for this which - for obvious reasons - I'll not go into here.

Email me:- moderator@idg.co.uk or use the 'contact Forum Editor' link that you'll see towards the top of the page. No need for a message,just go into the thread containing the spam message and then copy the url from your browser's address bar. Paste that into the body of the email,put the word 'spam' into the subject line and send it. Then post the message 'Spam - FE informed' on the thread,so others know,and I don't receive ten emails about the same spam post.

Many thanks for your cooperation - it will help me enormously.
