Yes, 'twas indeed! Looks like their creativity has run out of ideas already, though.. Yaksha1983 has decided to post some less inventive spam links! :x

Apologies for the double post, but I'm sure it can be excused in this thread! :wink:

To quote Monty Python, "Spam, spam, spam, spam.....etc." :mrgreen:

Natesk28 is the latest culprit.... :x

It's been a while since I've been on Spam-catching duty, but AllohaVed's contribution doesn't seem to have much to do with Moya and her music! :roll:

Could a mod deal, please?

The post would be more at home on Mike Pinder's forum (connected to Moya by the late Tony Clarke, producer of "Legend") or at least in the Rattle Bag section. The poster might have gotten to know this forum better before using it this way.

Yes, I've got rid of it :) thanks!
User says he's from England in his profile, but the IP resolves to Russia.
Now there's a surprise.
Spammer. Simple. Banned as such.
Thanks Dave and Turlough for the heads-up :)

I saw those spam posts too, better get that user off here. Also, forum loading time is extremely slow at the moment, I wonder if there is something seriously wrong with this site...

Yes, Suvi... I noticed it too. Let's hope it'll get sorted.

We've been blasted with spammers from Pakistan and Russia - I think I've taken care of them all and deleted their posts but I've also taken the precaution of disabling new users from registering until this can be sorted out, as I think a security loophole has been discovered.

Members will be able to use the forum as normal.

Thanks for the heads-up :)
