Unless Dave deleted something that someone posted, you have gotten me curious as I have no idea to what you are referring to.

Charlie, I think Dave must have deleted some posts.

In 'Stamp of the day' IIRC, there appeared three spurious new threads two of which were ****. Very shortly after I noticed them they disappeared.

That's good.

We have tried to keep spammers out and it is a never ending battle. Some forums use additional security programs, some of which become so complicated I have given up trying to post a comment.

If you notice anything that looks amiss let me or Dave know because sometimes we actually sleep.

Yes thank you Brian - both yourself and Fernando alerted me and I was able to delete them all quite quickly. Fortunately this particular idiot only started new threads and didn't add new posts to existing threads so he made life a bit easier. Not quite sure what motivates this type of person.

As Charlie says we rely on our members to let us know about these attacks as we can only cover a part of the day and not every day obviously for various reasons. I really need someone from Oceania to offer to be a moderator as then we will have 24 hour coverage, although again no-one is ever going to be available every day.

I have tried to make the forum as easy as possible to take part... sometimes I get a gut feel about a message applying to join and they never even get admitted to the forum.

Unfortunately that isn't a perfect system but up to now I have only been caught out twice.
