Hi all. I will be giving the site a miss for a while as I can't put up with all this foreign spam. See you all soon. ......I hope.

    It came back ans was wiped out again Fidget. Not a major problem when the mods are on duty. Imagine that on a friday night :)

    I missed this morning, too busy picking soft fruit. Summer pudding tonight. Yum.

    The mods are on it so it doesn't last long now.  For the weekend we're just going to have to agree to flag spam as soon as we see it.  Only takes 5 of us so I'm sure the regulars can team up and control it.

    Meanwhile, it's easy enough to scroll past.

    Hopefully joking, otherwise a massive over reaction to a minor problem.  The mods had it all cleared up by mid morning.

    Does everyone know how to flag spam? Sometimes I see spam that's had a dozen views and only two flags

    Some of the 'views' aren't views by human beings @nutcutlet ... they're 'views' by 'bots' https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_bot

    The quickest way to get rid of it is to put the poster on your ignore list and then click on Discussions.  That removes it and gives the mods a chance to get to it.
