    Posted: 22 May 2007 at 4:00am
Recently we have had problems with a number of people spamming the forums. This not only spoils the forums for all our visitors, it also wastes time which we could be using to improve the site.

Previously, spammers posts and accounts were deleted, but that doesn't stop them signing up again and continuing with their stupid attempts to get free advertising (which doesn't work anyway, most posts are deleted after only 2 or 3 views ).

We are now taking a zero tolerance approach to the problem. Anyone that posts spam here will not only have their account deleted, but their IP address will also be blocked.

Dear *Ste*

am posting here, as thought it best placed for you to receive.

Please can you look at how the topics appear in their listing for this forum.

In other forums order of their listed is by date of last post, with the latest first.

On this forum that does not happen, which possibly leads to one missing a response on a current issue.

Thanks and Regards - Mike
