There's a very queer post in here!
Then up he rose, and donn'd his clothes, / And dupp'd the chamber-door;
Let in the maid, that out a maid / Never departed more.

For some reason the spammers have targeted the technical venue. I don't get it myself. At least the last one apologized before they pasted their adverts!

Mare will be along shortly and clean up the mess, not to worry.

there's a simple reason, D : this is the only forum where people can post without being logged in. Iris and I keep it like this deliberately: if a board member is unable to log in for some technical problem, they should be able to alert an Admin to their problem.

There's a blessing in disguise, though: the IP of anyone who leaves a post on this board gets listed. If it's an exotic spammer, like our last one who was Brazilian, I can ban all of the respective provider's IPs. :devil:

In the latest case that was not possible: our friend with the bad grammar hails from Cleveland, Ohio. I can't ban an American provider as we have quite a few American board members. The risk of accidentially banning one of them is too high.
