Thanks, JB! Sending an e-cup or glass of whatever might go down well...

Thank you - I have a pot of Earl Grey and a chocolate cupcake. I'm working from home, can't get out as SLOC has had to take my car (someone crashed into his over the weekend) and I took a short break for baking.

Thanks JB, I'm home from Bristol now, so should be able to act on alerts from now on, and give you a break.

Yes, we know about it but each mod can only deal with her own forum[s] so waiting for one of the ones for S&W to come on.

Unfortunately, there seems to be an absolute plague of them this evening - hopefully everyone can try to ignore the horrible things until someone has chance to block them! I've deleted the LB&LB/Recommendations/Joey's Trunk ones, but they seem to be everywhere!

Echoing Cestina here - and good luck to the Mods in their mammoth task of removing them.

Good grief - that's almost two pages of it. Sending e-tea/coffee and cake (or equivalent) to everyone who has to tackle that lot!

It's popping up again..............! :(

The active mods are deleting what they can, but until someone with admin powers, who can block an IP address, comes on, they will keep coming, I'm afraid, as they will be automated.

Fingers crossed that we don't go the way of the SDL. Many thanks to all the mods for such sterling work.

That's just what I am hoping, too. And thank you to all the mods who are doing such a great job - I suspect it takes quite a while to clean such a load of spam out of the various section.

Our problem is that each of us can only do the forum[s] that we are mods for, and at the moment no-one with admin powers over the whole board, and who can ban an IP address, has happened to come on to see what is happening. A message has been sent, so we can but wait.

It's a real shame that we can't set the board so that the first X number of posts by new members have to be mod approved before they appear. That would sort out the spammers very quickly and doesn't risk overloading the board.

Thank you, mods, for fighting the spam fight. I know there's a lot to do.

Hopefully all deleted now, it is a huge help if people mark them using the exclamation mark though.
