Seriously guys, if somebody doesn't figure out a way to filter out these spammers soon, it won't be long before we're completely over-run and this site becomes useless. I thought that you had to be a member in order to post here.

Please remember that 'space' for this site is being donated by WoodCraft and in order to keep the site alive Jack has kindly volunteered to monitor this site.
Although he has admin rights to delete posts, he is in no way responsible for the security and filtering of the site.
As most open forums go this site has seen relatively few spammers and Jack does a great job of removing obvious spam in a very timely manner. I'm sure that he has other things to attend to.
Even the most sophisticated filters get spammed...
This site is no different...
When a filter is breached a new protocol must be enabled. This takes time.
The latest round of spam posts came in at 3am Thurs morning. It is unreasonable to think that any volunteer monitor should have cleaned it up within hours.
All the best,
Joe

I was on vacation last week. Normally, I check the site every couple days for spam and delete it.

I guess there's nothing quite as effective as leaving the helm unmanned for a while to make the crew appreciate your efforts. Thanks Jack.

Okay, spam doesn't usually make me smile but this is just too ironic!
