I'm sure the moderators have noticed the obvious spam being left by RUNSELL in the forums. I'm leaving a message here just in case.

Goodness! I don't know the technological solution to prevent spam, but maybe it is time to consider something. It seems to happen too frequently now.

Good luck to the moderators who have to clean up all the unwanted posts - thank you for keeping the forums clean!

msue, Clotilde has actually put a technical solution in place, but these spammers are unfortunately very persistent and obviously have far too much time on their hands.

Between us, we deal with it as quickly as we can. It was much worse for a while about 18 months ago when bots were able to flood this site and many others with rubbish. Which is not to discount the annoyance of the current spammers. With their fabulous computing skills, when they get home Clotilde and Maxence will devise a way to thwart this latest batch.

I know they are obnoxious and I promise we are doing all we can in Clotilde's absence. They seem like one beast that just refuses to die. Rest assured soon Clotilde will be back and working her magic to banish these annoying posts.

Have a wonderful weekend. I am off to slay the evil spam! Wink
