We have today suspended several "members" for spamming, removed their posts and reported them to their ISP.

Thank you to the members that reported the messages and please let us know if you see any further posts.

Thanks.

Looking at other forums, it's sad how many get clogged up with spam. It's great you're keeping on top of things so the forum members can access this resource without wading through junk.

Thanks Chris

I'm reviewing the spammer situation at the moment, but it is likely that in future any spammers will be reported to their broadband supplier and the site reported to Google to have it removed from searches.

Several more "members" have been removed today along with their posts for spamming.

They have also been reported to their broadband supplier along with the website host they were promoting.

Happy New Year to everyone on the forum and a quick thank you to the members that have reported spam posts to us.

Quite often these posts are to promote fake and shoddy goods so we would advise members NOT to follow any links in messages or signatures that they are not 100% certain of and to notify us.

In addition to reporting the "member" to their ISP we are now also reporting the site to to relevant manufacturer to investigate for counterfeiting.

I would also like to thank the spammers that post messages on this post as they are emailed through to me - making my job a lot easier Smile
