We seem to be having a spate of it today - thanks for the reports - please keep them coming if you see anything you think we should know about. Hopefully akirk will be a long shortly to lock things down a bit more tightly.

Ban hammer working overtime :(
No sign of Admin, who I really need to tighten up the sign-up as I don't have permissions to do that.

Done what I can, will try and keep an eye on it later. Hopefully no important posts lost in the tidyup so far.

It needs an english language maths question on signup. Somthing like:

"What is six times seven? Answer in digits."

That stopped bot signups completely on the phpBB installation that I ran.

LOL ^^^^^^^ - and as if by magic. Have you got anti spam sign-up system? :)

If you need a mod, I am happy to try and do my bit. Do it elsewhere quite a lot.

When I buy, sorry I mean if I wanted to buy Viagra I would Google it and buy some, why would I look here and click on a link that I can make no sense of?

Baffles me as to what the point actually is!
