    Hello all,

    As you may have noticed we were hit quite badly by spammers recently. We've now put in place some small changes to weed out automatic or “robotic” posting of messages by spammers. Every time you post you must now enter the text from an image, the idea being that if you are a piece of spamming software you will not be able to understand the image properly. This should deal with 90% of the problem messages.

    To deal with the other 10% we are soon to put in place a moderation system (been trying to set this up for a while), and a proper login system for users – with a view to eventually removing guest posting rights. As soon as the moderation system is ready we'll be emailing some of you and asking you to be moderators. More details will follow soon.

    For the time being please continue to use the “report this as spam” link for postings that are spam or generally nonsense postings.

    Cheers,

    Admin.
