SPAM POSTS

It's so irritating to dip back into the site every so often only to be met with a barrage of spam posts. So not a question, just getting a mini-rant off my chest.

    They happen at weekends when they think there are no Admin bods about. Another site owned by a big magazine group used to have the same problem and was closed down as a result. It's off-putting for possible new posters, and irritating for regulars, but it proved impossible to prevent.

    Yes, not blaming you, admin. One of life's irritations I guess

    I assume only registered members can post. So for those that post spam, may I recommend to rebuke them, then subsequently revoke their registration/membership once they've got the message? That way we can prune their numbers.

    Hi Susan,

    Irritating for us, too. There's not much we can do to prevent them at the moment, and we do delete them as soon as possible.
