Afternoon.

We are currently mopping up after close on 100 (and that's just the last count) spammers posted all over our boards last night and this morning.

Thank you for all your reports. We hope you'll understand that we're not going to reply to them. Please take it as read that we're really grateful.

IMPORTANT: we think we have tabs on pretty much all of the spammers now, so (even if we haven't deleted them all yet) so there is no need to report any more. In fact, any more reports and our system might keel over!

Once we can see the wood for the trees, we'll post again and ask you to report any remaining spam posts we might have missed.

Please bear with us. We are getting there.

Any Qs, do post em here and we'll do our best to answer you.

DP says to inform you that you're not missing much Helen. grin

<pops head round door> um Helen, what side of north London to you dress to??

ClayDavis Sun 03-Mar-13 16:42:48

Well, it's got more interesting now

RustyBear Sun 03-Mar-13 16:42:55

She's a gooner, I believe, Glaikit - in which case she may be happy not to be watching - Tottenham are now 1-0 up.

ClayDavis Sun 03-Mar-13 16:43:35

2-0 up now

RustyBear Sun 03-Mar-13 16:44:31

Not Helen's happiest day, then...

<passes more gin to Helen> ice and a slice??

ClayDavis Sun 03-Mar-13 16:46:48

It may get better for Helen. As a life long Spurs supporter I know its entirely possible to lose 5-2 from this point.
