Awful, I noticed that too..
I had the same spammer activity in other fora I am a member of. This was taken care of by asking new members some simple questions, regarding the site, before accepting them. Questions which could only be answered by humans, not a spambot. It helped overthere, spam-activity was over and done with.

Greetings, Coert. :)

All of these came from one email source which has now been banned from the site. It boggles the mind why anyone would bother to do this. Obviously, the spam is going to be removed.

Ok, obviously we have been spammed yet again, by some person out there whose pathetic reason for breathing oxygen is to cause problems for other humans on this planet. In saying that, I am sure that they have read this before. Consequently, we must rely upon our tech service to solve the problem. It is really ironic as a person in their 60's, that I am being subjected to the BS of an adolescent personality who has a certain command of the web. I will alert tech services.

I noticed that the spammer "Kevinhep" just joined the forum on May 2nd.
He had 51 posts, all spam.
This must be the number one hobby of millennials.

Again we have been spammed...

Now in Period photographs, and in Pickelhaube discussion. But could be active in more topics as I write this.

Problem has been fixed, by Brian and his tech crew, guy's just have to remember that this is a hobby for all of us including Brian, and the best thing to do is let him know when a problem arises like this, but be patient as it may take a little bit to get it fixed. I know it sucks that people out there do stuff like this, I do not get it..

But all is well in the end, thanks Brian and Crew for fixing.

I have communicated with Joel our tech support. So far all it has taken is an email from me and he is on it, very impressive response times. The thing is, if I have missed the spam, I need a heads up. James has been very good at letting me know.
