Heya guys,

I have a ticket open to have the forum Dev team check it out.

We will add some Spam protection and do some clean up.

Thanks for the heads up all.

Thanks , Jeff. This spam is hitting across pretty much all the forums. It's annoying, but keep reporting it. The bots can be beaten!

Been on the site for an hour doing One Touch and Ban and blocking IP's.

Might take 24-48 hours for controls to be added.

I just had to get my laptop scrubbed for viruses by a pro. I don't know where I picked them up, but the world's psychopaths are busy at work trying to make everyone else as miserable as they are.

I can't believe modern society is so dependent on technology that is so vulnerable to the machinations of so many. But, here we are.

And it still continues to plague this forum even now. Is anybody actually keeping an eye on things or is being a moderator here just a formality that has no real responsibility?

This same thing happened on the Volvo forum c30world dot com, They had to shut the whole thing down and start a new forum. That's how c30crew started, but they lost a lot of good technical information in the process.
