Having seen strange happenings on the site recently I thought I had found the answer - then realised the "Site Crash" posting was 2009 !

Looks like similar has happened again - especially where there appear to be numerous postings on 23 March

As there must have been problems, I wish you well in getting them sorted!

Hi Mike,

Thanks for raising this. We're experiencing a spate of Forum spam (seems to be from Russia) which we're in the process of fighting off.

Generally we're winning icon_smile.gif however we've had to make a variety of changes (more to come) to remove / block the activity.

What we've had to do a few times is mass-delete large amounts of spam which makes the forum look like it's got postings in (the orange icons) when in fact it's been bulk removed.

Once we've put some more measures in place to stop the spammers, we'll tidy things up a but so it's all in good shape.

Hope that helps reassure you - and thanks for your support icon_smile.gif

Just to let people know, we think we've been able to stop the spam attack on the forums.

Happy posting icon_smile.gif
