Spam Users Posting in Threads

Post by TomBoyNI » Sat Dec 23, 2017 8:03 am

Anyone else noticing spam users getting through recently and posting random nonsense on threads. Often old threads. Maybe time to implement user approval in the short term to weed out the spammers and scammers?

So did I.
Would this second post here > viewtopic.php?f=35&t=33847 be regarded as spam?
I would say so being as it's a first post.
