We can indeed use help to delete all the spam away.

I think some systems are more vulnerable than others. Not knowing how to block it, I looked up different spam blocking sites on the net but most seem to need you to change the site over to their system for the blocking to work.

I'm no expert. Sorry  :)

Also, I've noticed that of the dozen or so 'Users' currently on the site, I'm the only real person. The rest are spammers.

Probably the only way to keep them out is a change of site management to a provider that gives better security questions, like the one that asks you to copy the words and numbers in a box on the screen. Or one that needs personal authorisation from someone with Mod powers  before a new member can post. That way, spammers with names like cylifax1476 or similar get knocked back at the first hurdle. Mind you...that would probably have meant that we'd never have gotten the wise words of Claret999 past the security. Sounds like a site for winos!! :D

That was the plan - even with the "old" forum... but it didn't really work in that way.  :(
Let's hope Klaus can get it fixed!  8)
