OK just waded through the last 2 pages of new members and banned any names with dodgy websites and / or use names that look randomly generated. I have left some that could be genuine users or just 'monkey with typewriter' names that look like proper ones.

Holy smokes, we got nailed this morning! Almost all of the active topics were wipes off the list... At least I was able to capitalize on that awesome Steelers ring tone, what a deal!

OK my fault. I was a bit slack with activations and I reckon most were spammers. I'm going to look-see if I can reduce the amount of spammers trying to register.

I think it was tues that I had to take down a spammer too...loads of threads in nearly every section.

I fired 5 shots into his chest and one in the face to make sure, like Ross Kemp in ULTIMATE FORCE.

We get about 40-50 people registering each day and the majority are spammers. I'm being a bit more selective now.

Nice one. Was it pr0n or pills?

I've altered the registration page which now asks you to complete the well known (!) pwei song. Spammers seem to have stopped, for now.
