You're too late, oldCarlos :mrgreen:
This user had already been spamming and was banned immediately this morning.

I agree with that, good idea :)
By the way, I also noticed the great reduction of spam but it's still there, but I think Gordon did a nice job :)

Hi OldCarlos,

I've just deleted 14 spams and deleted the accounts. That's less than 24 hours since I deleted a great deal more!

Bob.

Be patient guys, the mods are doing what they can to stop the spammers. To some its a game, you block them and its a challenge for them to find a work around. What encourages them is some comments like above, there is a tag to click to report these guys and the mods will take care of it.


Cheers

It might sound funny, but I've got my own game. Report as many spam posts as possible :P

It's not as though I (presumably many) ever click on the links spammers post.

The other thing is, I click on that report button many times a day, every day & i'm getting fed up with it tbh. IF the post was hidden straight away it wouldn't be so bad, but it can be many hours later that the Mods sort it out. (I know they're busy & have jobs & lives etc away from here & not complaining at that btw)

A forum I was a member of before introduced a system where the first few posts every new user wanted to post had to be approved by a mod before it was published. Is that possible here?
