Default Contacted webmaster regarding the spam posts

Just a quick post to mention I've emailed the forum's webmaster for the spam posts so they can take immediate action.

So no need to let them know, it's done !

Default Thank you!

Thank you Fabyon, and all others! We have removed the offenders from the board, many apologies, we try to keep the riffraff out, but sometimes they will slip under our radar!

We are also working on preventative measures to try and keep the spammers out. I will keep everyone posted in this thread.

Just a quick update -

We have added an additional human verification check on the registration page. This should stop more of the automated spammers.
