    Without these people we'd be a quagmire of spammy posts.

    Keep up the good work folks!

    I was wondering was there a way to actually block them totally from this site or do they have to be removed individually as they post them?

    We use a combination of methods to limit spam (all highly classified and I'd have to kill/ban you if you knew, etc), and so nowadays it's pretty easy to stay ontop of. But unfortunately the more difficult we make it for spammers, the more difficult it becomes for new members to join and post, so there is a balance to be struck.

    We do have some countermeasures and tools to remove spam, but it can still be a click fest when we get a substantial flood of it, often in the mornings (UK time).
    Appreciate the thanks @dontpanicbobby and all the people who report the spam we've missed.

    You'd have to give me that beer before we jump, @Stinky Stinky ;)

    Spammers and scammers ... if you ask me they should all be required to perform community service ... servicing port-a-potties at huge festivals in the hot summer where they've been serving cabbage. ;)

    Did people really say Burn! in the 1970's?
    I never did. Picked it up from watching "That 70's Show" starring Spiderman...
