Spambots specifically designed to hit forums like this one are quite common I'm afraid. Happens all the time. A skilled forum admin can keep on top of such things, but it helps if eagle-eyed mods and members spot 'em and nuke 'em. If you see a spam before anyone else does, just leave it be and PM any moderator who is online.chris42 said:does this type of thing happen alot?
Er, what happens to those of us who are used to posting drivel?Administrator said:So far the mods are doing a fantastic job of spam killing, however I hope to add a flag facility too. This will allow members to flag-up rubbish if they see it, and alert us to any potentially harmful threads
