Hi all,
As you are most likely aware the forum has been hit hard in the last six weeks by excessive spam posts.
My apologies for not picking up on this sooner.
I’ve now removed all the spam, deleted the accounts of those responsible, and updated and patched the website to make it as secure as possible. Unfortunately spam is a constant battle and I can never say that it won’t reappear, however I’ll be sure to check in more regularly in order to catch it sooner.
I can see from a couple of posts here that my recent absence has been a source of frustration to some users of the forum so again I’m truly sorry. A combination of work, recently moving house and trying to look after my crazy 7 year old twins has taken all of my time and as a consequence I’ve been missing from the site for the longest period in it’s 8 year history.
But… everyday is a school day and I can honestly say I’ve learned from this. I’ll ensure that even during my busy periods I’m at least able to check in weekly in order to detect spam. If you see something on the site that I’ve missed the best way of letting me know would be to send me an email. I’m not going to put my address here as I don’t want it picked up by spam-bots but if you look up to the top of the page you’ll see a link to the contact page – all my details are there. I go through my emails a couple of times a day so nothing will be overlooked.
Apologies again,
Steve

Cheers Frank – I’ll try and keep on top of it. Shame that it should ever be a problem in the first place 🙁
