I deleted them all. It took forever!! I wish mods could just ban or delete users which would remove all their posts too. Takes quite a qhile deleting 30 posts from the same person

I thought you were going to talk about the almost-meat like product !!!!! Yeah, hate spam, have been getting heaps of emails from the "commonwealth bank"....not even a customer, so sure it's not actually them!!! Anyway, well done mods for keeping this place tidy, I'm sure it's the bane of your forum existence!!!!

I have spent a few early mornings deleting around 30 posts from a spammer this week, I have had 2 banned but I suspect they are the same person making a new account.

Maybe we all need to e-mail scotty letting him know we need the ability to ban users, ive done it myself before but it might sink in more if other people do it. I normally only have half an hour on here before i head to work or uni and this morning it took me about 20 minutes to delete over 30 porn posts from the same guy! or they need to set the site up differently, maybe get approval before being able to post?

It seems to have gotten worse the last few days, I have suggested one of the captcha programs. We will see.

You have to type in a code that is given at the sign up stage, it will only stop robots but it will filter out some of the crap.
