    Is anyone who is empowered to do so prepared to deal with these spam attacks over the last twelve hours?

    Steve, have a good look at the "welcome aboard" thread mate, the spam has been incoming for at least the last 18 hours now.
    Tommi has already dealt with some but it continues.

    Ron, check the welcome aboard threads there's at least half a dozen there........look a little more closely.
    Ok you might like the Dominatrix Ron, but it's still spam.

    Well, if no one else besides me can see it it's obviously not a problem......but perhaps just a problem for me...:nailbiting:

    No....you're dead right Mark. Also one in the SBS section.
    Not sure if there can be any automatic system solutions in a forum whose strength is non elitist with open access.
    Basically I just ignore them but there is a risk that if they increase genuine members become less active on the site.
    In other forums there is a reliance on administrators to 'clean house' a couple of times a day but that brings it's own problems
    where guys who voluntarily do the job end up being accused of trying to control access.

    Hey hold on. I needed a roofer and couldn't find one anywhere. Why didn't I think to look here? Damn! And I bet that a roofer advertising here paints and sculpts in his/her spare time.

    Damn. The wife always says I do not pay attention to squat...

    It's a shame the "Welcome Aboard" forum is the one continuing to be affected by the troll because many members will be now be reluctant to welcome genuine new commers from now on....shame.
    But my original question remains, is anyone prepared to at least delete the ones that currently exist? Not dealing with it doesn't seem to me to be a very effective deterrent.

    Hi Folks

    All spammer threads now removed and users blocked. Sorry for the delay. Life has been quite difficult for me the past few months so I have not been able to dedicate much time to PF or the hobby that I enjoy, also my internet access has been quite limited although this has now been resolved.

    Things are coming good for me now so should be back on top of things from this point onwards and hopefully get back to some painting as well.

    Cheers

    Nice to see the problem has been resolved. Thanks to Tommie and also to Mark S, who can always spot the troublemakers. What is this about Gordy though? What's happened to him?
