Who's pinched the spam?

It's sort of odd to pop in and find that there's a shortage of spam to report. :lol:

Something gone wrong with the forum - aren't we worth spam anymore? :mrgreen:

It's all to do with these super efficient new young Mods, Flo. :lol:

Or to be brutally honest, it's the way new members now have to be "vetted" that has stopped spammers from being able to join unannounced and immediately spam everywhere.

Ah - our secret weapon :iconbiggrin:

There was a time when newbies were approved automatically and the first thing we knew about whether or not they were spammers was when the spam suddenly appeared. More recently, newbies cannot post before being vetted and spammers are, most of the time, easy to spot and eliminate before they get anywhere near the forum.

It means spending a little time vetting as opposed to a lot of time cleaning up the mess.

EDIT: Ah - I see I wasn't up early enough :lol:

They get increasingly sneaky, Flo, so I'm sure one will sneak past us when we're not looking. :wink:

Nope only moderators and admin it seems. I'll bet they don't taste as good as decent chips. :wink: :mrgreen:

I much prefer to be pickled.
Not sure what pickled admin tastes like though.

Speaking of spam ... I had to laugh this morning about a bona fide advert here for dental implants (no, seriously). They're advertised by a woman with a beautiful smile but no clothes.

Obviously, the treatment is so expensive that the poor girl simply had no money left over to buy a new T-shirt. :lol:

Well she'd better hope they're centrally heated then. I don't know about further south but it's mighty nippy up here this morning. Ouch! :shock:

Nippier down here than it has been lately, just on 10 c at 7 o'clock, down from the 15 c or so of recent nights.
Are you braced for tomorrow's weather Maggie, it looks like we might miss the worst of it, but you look likely to be clobbered.

Why don't I get naked ladies first thing in the morning ? :( No don't answer that.
