spammer attack.
« on: March 27, 2016, 08:10:57 AM »
Last night a spammer managed to get through the forum security settings and posted their usual garbage in two topics, two of the forum members were very quick to pick up on this and sent me a moderators report. I acted very quickly and banned the user and deleted the offending posts.

Many thanks to Ernie and Jamo for being so vigilant and reporting the incident promptly, this enabled me to rectify the issue before it got out of hand.

Very very rarely does a spammer find a back door into the forum but on this occasion it happened, we all know that the sole intention of these low life is to destroy all the hard work that has been put into building this forum not only by me but by the members as well. My security has been set-up to prevent these spammers gaining access but when the unthinkable happens it is reassuring to know that members are quick to respond by reporting the incident.

Thanks again guys for keeping an ever watchful eye on the forum.
