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.

Confused.... Are we meant to report spam or post them (name and/or section) here when we spot them?

HazeltheMcWitch Fri 08-Mar-13 18:12:42

MNHQ - have just spotted a load of odd posts all over the shop. I have reported some, but now wondering whether I should have done...

Sorry, meant to say 2 dodgy links in each. Same format message.

Tee2072 Fri 08-Mar-13 18:49:12

They want us to post here the location of the SPAM.
