We're getting an awful lot of spam at the moment folks, just in case you haven't noticed :lol:

This seems to happen periodically when they find a hole in our spam filter (that's probably a wholly wrong description of how it works but no doubt JH will put you straight on the matter).

John is working on closing it again but in the meantime can you do exactly what some of you have been doing - report it in the appropriate section or click the report button. If you can provide a link to it even better - sometimes it's hard to find :?

Sorry for the inconvenience - normal service will resume as soon as possible! :lol:

Looks like one has just popped from "Morevika"
it's either one or the other, or neither of the two.

It's funny when they spam the spam threads though, or even report themselves to the moderators which is hysterical. :lol:
