Yes - I deleted about 20 yesterday and banned two users. Today it was closer to 40 and I banned 5 or 6 more. All 'User names' were a random collection of letters and numbers and all joined on May 08, so they were pretty easy to find and ban

We'll see what tomorrow brings!

They were all coming from the same IP address so I've banned it.

Now we'll just have to wait and see if they use another IP to attack the forum.

Thanks for all your deleting work Mods!

Well, it had been quiet until last night. Over 50 spam posts by two attackers. Hopefully squelched.

I’ve often though all posts with links in them made by someone with less than 50 posts should be ghosted until a moderator approves.

This is how other sites deal with it then the spammer thinks his posts are there but in reality only he sees them
